About Us

Our waterway’s mix of cold ocean tides, warm water inlets, and the temperate Great Salt Bay that feeds the river creates an ideal oyster environment unlike any other in the world. Our sea farm was started by the work of an obsessive marine biologist partnering with the State of Maine to take advantage of that fact. It took a dozen years of intense experimentation to establish the environmentally-sustainable practices and operational efficiency that support our farm today. Like the river we call home, we continue to evolve to refine our efforts to produce the one thing we’re most passionate to share: the perfect oyster.

Moving his muscles by day and noggin’ at night is just John’s kind of jam. He relishes his dual role hopping between ops and balancing the Glidden Point books.

Kelly Punch

Kelly’s the kind of Jill-of-all trades who blossoms wherever she’s planted. Whether picking, sorting, or packing, Kelly just glows when she goes with the Glidden Point flow.

Spinney’s technically a moun­tain man, but after building, adapting and running the drag crew for months, now he’s a river man too. Full bags and long days are Spinney’s trademarks. His storytelling is pretty epic too.
