What Is Little Beach Harvest?

Owned and operated by the Shinnecock Indian Nation, Little Beach Harvest officially opened at 56 Montauk Highway in Southampton on November 15, 2023. The history-making company is the tribe’s inaugural cannabis enterprise, and it was the first in New York State to feature both medical and adult-use products in the same space. For 420, the LBH team want to break ground again, with their dispensary’s debut “high holiday” showcasing the best of all they have to offer as a wellness destination, including the release of their Shinnecock Select line of premium flower and 90u solventless Hash Rosin, 0.5g disposable Hash Rosin vaporizers, and hash rosin gummies.

“We want everyone to feel welcome,” says Jay Wright, Brand Specialist for Little Beach Harvest. “This should be a hub for cannabis and building community… Because it’s about the plant itself, and the plant has many different faces, from young adults to seniors. Even if you don’t know much about cannabis, I want you to come to this event and gain a contact. That’s what we want this place to be.”

He goes on to explain the importance of Little Beach Harvest’s location: “Because we’re on Shinnecock land, we have more opportunities to do these kinds of events without limitations from an outside influence. Being on the eastern end of Long Island, there’s not always as much to do out here. So we’re giving the town, and the island, and people from communities all across [New York], a place to enjoy and be safely happy with your plant. That’s what we’re all here for.”

There are many reasons to find your bliss at Little Beach Harvest during “420 in the Hamptons,” but here are a few must-see highlights.

What Can You Expect At Little Beach Harvest's "420 In The Hamptons"?

Shinnecock Ceremonies And Traditions

The festivities will open at 12PM with a ceremonial tribal prayer and blessing of the event, led by Bianca Collins of the Shinnecock Nation’s Council of Trustees. Traditional music will be played to accompany the prayer, performed by tribal members, including one of the day’s featured artists, King Charles FNYK. Because much of Shinnecock heritage is grounded in connection to nature, and with Earth Day happening on Monday, April 22nd following the weekend, the prayer will also include blessings of the sovereign land on which the store is located.

Later in the afternoon, artisans will be set up inside the retail space with Shinnecock craft products. Apparel, jewelry, skincare items, and many other non-cannabis products made by tribal members will be available for purchase, as well as education about the Nation’s history and culture.
