Our Farms
Maine Oyster Farm
Oysters are as unique as their aquatic neighborhoods. Subtle differences in surrounding waters and substrates create a distinctive taste and texture profile that reflects the “merroir” of the oyster’s home.
 
Maine oysters endure somewhat chilly water temperatures for much of the year. As a result, they grow slowly, producing thick, strong shells with comparatively large, crisp meats.

The Damariscotta River is a clean, cold, 15 mile funnel of currents and tides, passing through granite channels, ledges, and narrows.  Abundant mixing of fresh and salt water circulates nutrients, producing algal blooms and creating perfect oyster growing conditions. It is in this highly regarded location that our oysters thrive and grow.
 

- Harvested, chilled, and shipped live from March to January (or longer, weather willing)
- Contain no artificial or chemical feeds or additives
- Ecologically beneficial, sustainable, nutritious, and delicious!
