Southold - Peconic Pearls are a new brand of oysters grown by the Noank Aquaculture Cooperative at the Shellfisher Preserve in Southold - on the North Fork of Long Island. Proceeds from the sale of Peconic Pearls benefit projects for the Peconic Estuary through donations to the Peconic Land Trust, a non-profit land conservation organization on Long Island. Projects supported by the program can be in the areas of education, research, resource enhancement and land preservation related to the Peconic Estuary.

The National Grid Foundation GLOBEE Awards are presented to leaders who recognize that global changes begin with small local steps, blazing a path for others to follow. Grand Central Oyster Bar Executive Chef Sandy Ingber believes strongly in the Peconic Pearls project's environmental goals and has been selected by the National Grid Foundation as the first winner of this award.
