Slow growing, cold water, Atlantic oyster, farmed in a salt water cove on Georgetown Island.
Twice a day the flood tide refreshes their palates with salty cold water rushing into the head of the cove from the Atlantic — and twice a day the ebb tide washes over them with an abundance of nutrients drawn from the warmer shallow waters of the food factory marsh at the cove’ bottom.
Our oysters live closer to the marsh end, giving them a distinctively sweet taste.
For both oysters and their farmers, life is good on the Hood.
We fly our oysters same day as harvest to your home or restaurant, via FedEx and Oyster Commons
