Salt Wind Oysters
Salt Wind Oysters are grown by Sam Nygren and Matt Hassler. Nygren and Hassler established Salt Wind Seafarm in the Scarborough River in 2019. They selected their growing site to border the Scarborough Marsh, one of the largest saltwater marshes in Maine. The result is an oyster that has plenty of access to nutrients needed to grow, due to the freshwater influence in the marsh. Salt Winds are surface cultured oysters that are tumbled twice in their lifetime before being harvested for market. This attention to detail and diligence in handling creates well-shaped oysters with deep cups to grow into.
Sam and Matt are a part of a younger generation of oyster farmers, and the next wave of watermen that are returning to the sea and keeping the working waterfront alive in Maine. Sam still clams regularly, and Matt works as a contractor in addition to farming. They plan on growing the farm into a full-time operation

I’m glad about the Green packaging however, if my last purchase is any indication, I might have lost my oysters. The inside packs were thawed and the ice was melting into water at the bottom. Thank goodness my pkg. arrived on time. The oysters were delicious; sweet with a mild after taste of brine. I wish the size had been more uniform. That seemed to be mixed and most of the oysters I would classify as small in size. Big taste, little oyster.
Half a bite
Oysters were very small-not even a full bite. And two them were dead and already opened--smelled bad. Would n't eat those.
Smaller and delicious!
These were a little on the smaller side, which my wife and daughters loved! Good brine, a little meaty flavor, clean and fresh. The shells were a little on the fragile side, not sure why, but some broke off the leverage point when opening. Delicious none the less! Would get them again for sure.
Perfectly creamy & salty ❤️
