GROWN IN Pamlico Sound near Ocracoke Island, NC
CULTIVATED BY Albert O’Neal & Stevie Weeks
Woccocon (pronounced Wa-ka-kan) Oysters are grown on the sound side of Ocracoke Island. After being settled by colonists in the 17th century, this little island earned the name “Woccocon,” probably derived from the nearby Woccon tribe. Over the centuries, the name evolved into its modern iteration: Ocracoke.
Growing in the shallow waters of the Pamlico Sound, Woccocon oysters take on a clean, grassy flavor. Their proximity to the open ocean keeps the salinity level medium to high.
