We're like the mailman. Rain, sleet, or snow... we're doing it.

Ever wonder how we get our oysters from the Cape to Boston? Here's a behind the scenes look as we join Mikahail on last Wednesday's "Cape Run." Pick ups may be as early as 5:30 am or as late as 7 pm, it all depends on the tide. In the summertime, it may take 12+ hours to pick up from all the growers scheduled.

That morning, it was raining cats and dogs. The high that day was 52º F. Eventually the skies cleared, and it turned out to be a gorgeous afternoon, but as Mikahail said, "We're like the mailman. Rain, sleet, or snow... we're doing it."
