After years in the corporate life, Peter Stein traded desks for docks and founded Peeko Oysters in 2016. Since then he’s never looked back, guiding the business through high season summers and global pandemics alike.
A native New Yorker and avid fisherman, Stein’s lifelong love of the North Fork imbues his work from tide to table, which makes eating and learning about Peekos a true treat.
Peeko Oysters are grown in Little Peconic Bay, approximately eighty miles east of Manhattan. We launch our boats from our dock on the bucolic North Fork of Long Island, just down the road from farms and vineyards that have been in operation for centuries.
Our proximity to New York City and the greater metro area helps us sustainably deliver freshly-harvested Peekos to world-renowned restaurants and home kitchens alike. We care deeply about the local economies and environments that are so unique to Long Island and encourage all our customers to support their local food systems.
We also love visitors. If you find yourself on the North Fork, swing by for a shucking lesson, a farm tour, or even a sunset cruise if you like. We'll be there!
