  • What kind of oysters do you grow?
    We grow Eastern Oysters aka Crassostrea Virginia. This is the same oyster grown up and down the East Coast of North America from the Canadian Maritimes to Florida. Malpeques, Wellfleets, Blue Points, Chesapeake Bay oysters, and Apalachicolas are all C. Virginica. The differences among Eastern oysters are due to the local conditions where they grow. Things like the salinity, turbidity and temperature of the water all factor into the merroir; the oyster version of terroir. We call our oysters Peconic oysters as a nod to their Peconic Bay provenance.
  • Can I eat oysters your oysters year-round?
    Yes! We harvest our oysters 52 weeks a year. There are variations in flavor and size depending on the season. Best to eat them regularly so you don't miss out on the differences from one month to the next.
  • How do you ensure the safety of your oysters for consumption?
    The most important factor is ensuring oyster chill. As soon as we haul our oysters out of the bay we chill them to <45° right on the oyster barge and keep them chilled until they get to you. The NY Dept of Environmental conservation monitors and inspects our operation to be sure we're following best HACCP practices.
  • How are your oysters grown?
    We grow our oysters 20' below the surface of Peconic Bay in cages that provide protection from predators while allowing the natural tidal flow to run through the cages and provide a steady stream of nutrients. Every six weeks the oysters are hauled to the surface for tumbling and grading. This process ensures deep cups, strong shells and great fill.
