The roots of Maine Aquaculture started with true pioneers, hardy folk, salts of the earth; people who didn't take no for an answer; who weren't afraid to fail, to try again, to kill millions of oysters before getting them to market. It was a steep learning curve, but we persisted. It's taken some time, but we've got the good stuff now. There's something special growing here in this corner of New England, and as many more curious souls quietly return to the sea to try their hand and their luck at an honest living growing an oyster that is unique and keeping the working waterfront alive, we're finding the best and making it available to you.
Times are tough, and this year is certainly one for the books. Support our Coastal Harvesters partner farms, and try four varieties of oysters, a different one for each week in September, or, try them all and receive 5% off the Maine Oyster Month collection after your first purchase with code MEOYSTERMONTH.
The Program: We picked a selection of oysters from a few different growing regions in Maine, with differing grow-out methods to provide a distinct variety of taste profiles. The resulting are four of our favorite Maine oysters, grown by our dear friends and neighbors, shipping once/week, every Thursday for Friday delivery, for the month of September. Everything is sold in 36 count bags, and Priority Overnight Shipping is included.
