About Bombazine Oysters

Harvest location: Brunswick, Maine

How they’re grown: Bombazines are grown on the New Meadows River, accessible by a small dock off of co-owner Chris Burtis' home in Brunswick, Maine. This location comes alive on a sunny day, with deep green pines, blue bird skies, and golden yellow rock jutting into rich aqua water.

Why they’re unique: 
The farm sits between two islands in the New Meadows River, one of which is called Bombazine. This works well, because as this crew says, these oysters are the BOMB!

Like many oyster farmers, the crew at Ferda Farms started this endeavor in 2018 as eager and excited rookies (a former shucking master and three high school seniors!) with a passion for aquaculture. They have since made great strides, innovating with hand made, solar powered tumblers, and adapting their process to fit the environment around them. As a result they have introduced a solid boutique oyster to the Maine market that tastes “clean like the state of Maine!“.

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.⁠
