Earnest McIntosh, Sr. grew up crabbing with his father near Harris Neck, Ga. Later when it came time for he and his son to make a living on the water together, crabs were over. Now McIntosh and Son Seafood is trying to make a living farming oysters.
You can serve them fried, steamed, or raw on the half shell. But oysters probably don't immediately come to mind as a food product of Georgia. Now there is an oyster renaissance underway in the South, and the tasty mollusk will be the subject of a class at this weekend's Southern Grown Festival on Sea Island.
