About Mants Landing Oysters

Harvest location: Brewster, MA

How they’re grown:
 Scott says he owns just about every piece of oyster growing equipment ever invented. This sounds like a recipe for backyard farming, an industry-wide phenomenon that spans both coasts, and we are totally guilty of here in Duxbury. Anyhow, after 7 years Scott is still on the hunt for the perfect grow out method, but mostly he uses bags in cages that sit right on the bottom. He buys his seed from Matunuck, Rhode Island.

Why they’re unique: 
Scott's is a very small production farm. You're not going to find these anywhere else. They are grown on white sand, which comes through both in their simple shells and in their squeaky clean flavor.

Story: 
Scott Leonhardt and his wife Sally have been growing oysters for a while yet they have not managed to harvest a sizeable crop--a testament to just how hard it is to grow these things. These quintessential boutique east coast oysters are not always available due to their low production numbers. So if you see them on the list, pounce!

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.⁠
