Size: ~2.5"

These oysters have a super salty undertone, with savory notes of parmesan rind that lead into a sweet, creamy finish. They also have a perfectly meaty, toothy texture. A prime example of blending location and technique for a truly unique oyster.⁠⁠

About Beach Point Oysters

Harvest location: Barnstable, MA, CCB31MA

How they’re grown: Mark grows his oysters like an Aussie. Using a technique called Australian Long Line, oysters are suspended in baskets that float with the tides. When the tides change, the oysters are rocked and tumbled, creating deep cups and strong, clean shells.⁠⁠ The grow-out process takes between 12-18 months.

Why they’re unique: 
In Barnstable Harbor, the cold, clean waters of Cape Cod Bay mix with spring water from local creeks to give Beach Points their unique flavor. Mark does everything by hand, even removing all the barnacles from the shells himself. We appreciate you, Mark!

Mark’s farm is a family affair! Initially a weekend farmer, he started the shellfish farm in 1999 after he received a two-acre aquaculture grant. Mark’s brother, Jim is a regular on the farm, and his sons Chris and Mark Anthony were instrumental in the stewardship of the grant. His wife Linda, and daughter, Michelle are also key players on the farm.

Mark has a Master of Science degree in Engineering from Northeastern University, is on the board of trustees of the Massachusetts Aquaculture Association, and helped develop the Best Management Practices for the Shellfish Culture Industry in Southeastern Massachusetts. Smarty pants

Oyster FAQ

How long do my oysters keep?

Your oysters keep in the refrigerator for 5-7 days!  You can order a day or two early to make sure you have them in time for your gathering.  They are totally fine hangin’ out in the cool air.  

How do I store these bad boys?

When you receive your package, pull them out of the box (these guys need a little fresh air!). Grab a mixing bowl and throw the mesh bag in the bowl so that the oysters don’t leak all over your refrigerator. Grab a damp cloth and throw the cloth over the bowl.  You are good to go for the next 5-7 days. Doesn’t hurt to dampen the cloth each day to keep them moist and chilled.

Should I keep them on ice?

Only put the oysters on ice before service.  The oysters will actually die in the melted fresh water so do not store the oysters on ice.  They will not like this.

How are they shipped?

We ship using FedEx Overnight service. You will receive tracking info after the label has been printed the day before your oysters are set to arrive.  We do not require a signature – Fedex will leave your package at your doorstep.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Short answer: YES!

Our ClimaCell thermal liners are made of 90% FSC certified virgin kraft paper and corn starch, which allows you to recycle the insulated liner at home along with the cardboard box.⁠

Not only are the liners water repellant, they’re just as insulating as traditional styrofoam AND they can be recycled up to 5 times. Saving the planet has never been easier.⁠
