Flavor – The vitamin filled delights enter your mouth with their briny goodness and leave with a sweet finish that has you craving more. Some may adjust the briny start by pouring liquor, but that sweet finish is something that cannot be tampered with, not that you would want to.
Cultivation – We cultivate oysters for 3-4 years in our cove’s floating cages near a saltwater marsh, hence the sweet taste. The tidal wave from the ocean twice a day brings in its briny flavor and fresh nutrients for the oysters.
Size and Shell – The oysters can grow from 2.5 to 3 inches, and thanks to our tumblers, they have a hard shell with a meaty interior.
Availability – You can have these oysters all year since our cove does not freeze during winter and retains its cold temperature during summers.
