About North Haven Oysters

Harvest location: North Haven, Maine

How they’re grown: North Haven's are a product of magic. Round, emerald green, heavy, and not easy to come by. Adam Campbell, who grows them, is a man of many skills. Sea Urchin harvester, fisherman, prodigious father, local wise man, and wizard. Surely, his lease is part of the enchantment - a steady stream of brackish water flowing across the oysters at all times, nestled in a small sun-exposed tidal inlet on the island of North Haven.

Why they’re unique: 
This is one of the most beautiful oyster farms we’ve ever seen. Surrounded by rolling hills of tall meadow grass, a few farmhouses sitting atop each hill, and through the valley runs a perfect dirt road, curving between Heidi’s Pond, and a small inlet that leads out to Penobscot Bay. At the top of the inlet, the oysters blanket the bottom of the riverbed in their bright green color. It looks like a Wyeth painting come to life.

Adam was the first person to try and farm oysters on North Haven, so the story begins with him. His understanding of what the oysters need, and especially what they DON'T need - everything he’s learned in the past 20 years of growing oysters - allows this environment to bubble up to its fullest potential. And that might be a metaphor for the North Haven folks, in general. They know how to work with the product and the endlessly giving land, but they don't try to control everything.

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.⁠
