Farmer: Quahog Bay Conservancy
Location: Quahog Bay, Harpswell, Maine
Farming Technique: Grown in modest numbers, the Snow Islands are grown in upweller systems until they are about .5" in size. They are then moved to floating mesh bags where they will grow for the next 2-3 years in the cold waters of Maine.
Unique Factor: The Quahog Bay Conservancy sends 100% of their proceeds from Snow Island Oysters to Quahog Bay Conservancy’s programs that protect the ecological integrity of the bay. Yes, 100%. Seriously!
Salinity: We'd give these a 8 out of 10.
Flavor Notes: High in salt with lots of grassy, earthy undertones. Straight up Maine perfection.
