About Spindrift Oysters

Harvest location: Westport, MA

How they’re grown: These oysters are grown on 3 acres at the mouth of the Westport River. The seed is placed in trays on the river’s shore. These trays are exposed 25-50% of the day due to the tide depending on location. Bags are moved around to keep the oysters’ exposure consistent from bag to bag. When around .5” in size, the oysters are moved to bottom cages on the ocean floor. They take around 24 months to grow to market size.

Why they’re unique: 
These cages are constantly handled. Because they are grown at the mouth of the Westport River, the equipment needs to be maintained all the time. They are also able to harvest all year long because he can move the oysters to deep waters to protect them during winter storms and ice. What a guy!

Toph is a family man. He got into the oyster business after spending 10 years as a Civil Engineer and 5 years as a stay at home Dad. He fell in love with oyster farming because it allows him to have a flexible schedule to spend time with his children and to be outdoors. He loves the water so much that he named the oysters after the nautical term ‘Spindrift,’ referring to the mist sprayed from a crashing wave. We think these oysters taste like a slap of fresh, salty air, too!

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!
