Island Creek Oysters - 50 Count

Our flagship Oyster, grown right here in Duxbury, Massachusetts. 

Farmer:  Skip Bennett (Founder of Island Creek Oysters) and a group of Duxbury growers

Size: Smaller consistent cull, round cup 

Farming Technique: Island Creeks are nurtured in our hatchery for 3 months, grown in floating upwellers for 3 months, then rack and bag system for 3 months. For the last 12 months of the grow-out process, they are bottom planted "free range" on the mud flats of Duxbury Bay. 

Unique Factor: Duxbury Bay has drastic 12 foot tides, which brings lots of new water loaded with food (algae) into the Bay, giving the oysters their unique, complex flavor.

Salinity:  We'd give these a 5.5 out of 10 with lots of brine - more "brine" than straight salt

Flavor Notes: Quintessential East Coast oyster, salt at the front, sweet on the finish. Perfectly balanced. These will slap you across the face with complexity!

*Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
