How they're grown: These Maine gems are grown on a large 30-acre property in the Damariscotta River. They are tossed on the ocean floor and harvested by divers or dragged for by boat.

How they taste: These are magically creamy and savory. Think of a butter-rich chicken noodle soup. They even have a dense texture which reminds us of biting into a chicken thigh. Come and get it!

Why they're unique:  This farm claims to be the oldest working oyster farm in Maine!

Story:  This farm goes back to 1977. The history of shellfish consumption in this area goes back even further. Oyster middens [a.k.a. old oyster shell piles] along the Damariscotta shore are up to 1,000 years old! Google 'Whaleback Oyster Midden' and be amazed. Humans have been loving Maine oysters for a very long time. This farm also operates as a hatchery, Muscongus Bay Aquaculture, supplying seed to local farms.
