Connecticut has unveiled its inaugural Connecticut Oyster Trail, complete with a map highlighting the farms, shops, and restaurants that contribute to the state's thriving oyster industry.
In this week's Road Trip Close to Home, News 12 photojournalist Lori Golias explores Long Island Sound and beyond to capture the essence of this culinary journey.
Oyster farming in Connecticut involves meticulous planning, with farmers focusing on a three-year crop cycle to ensure optimal growth and flavor. As oysters filter water, their presence contributes to a cleaner environment.
Local businesses like Pagano's Seafood have been serving oysters for decades, offering a variety of options to satisfy customers' cravings. Owner Alan Pagano hopes the Oyster Trail map will encourage people to explore and indulge in this culinary delight.
