Glidden Point Select
Glidden Point oysters are renowned for their heavy shell, and beautiful appearance. We grow Glidden Points slowly, and in the nutrient-rich depths of the Damariscotta River, a world class growing environment. We start Glidden Point oysters from seed and grow them in upwellers and floating bags on the surface of the river until they reach the appropriate size to be planted on the leases at the bottom of the river. It is there, up to 40 ft below at our deepest site, that they develop their hefty shell, and mature to market size after 3-4 years. We don't rush the process.
All Glidden Point oysters are harvested by hand, and often by scuba diver. We touch our oysters every step of the way, and it's the care we take, whether it's grading seed, diving, or culling, that produces a premium oyster we're proud to share with you, and proud to call our own.
The difference between cocktails and selects are merely size preference. Cocktails are 2.5-3" while Selects are 3-3.5"+.

Glidden Pt. "Yummies" Selects
I've had the good fortune to eat oysters all over the world and I must confess Glidden Pts. are a standout for me in taste and texture. At this time of the year, it's prime eating when the oysters are plump, filling their shells to the limit. All they lack is a magic wand waving over their beds to make them twice as large. I'll be in line for those!
Glidden Point Select Oysters
These are the BEST oysters. The brine good size for Rockefeller, grilling and just on the half shell.
I wish I could give 6 stars
An amazing east coast treat that we enjoyed out here on the west coast. Fast shipping, fresh oysters direct from the farm...what more could you ask for?
Maine’s Finest Oyster
Fresh, fresh, fresh! This Damariscotta gem is not to be missed. I have never received fresher oysters. Plump, briny, with a wonderful texture. Will definitely be ordering again…and again.
