Glidden Point Gems *Limited Edition*
Bottom grown, surface finished
GEMS are back! Our second and last haul of the season will be available to ship this week only. If you missed them last time, now's your chance, as these Gems won't be available again until next summer, July 2021.
Limited edition GEMS are oysters that we bottom planted in the Fall of 2018. They were dive harvested this spring from the depths of the Damariscotta, and then set out on our lines to finish their grow out on the surface.
After three winters on river bottom, and a little vacation this summer in warmer waters, and with access to food that's more readily available on the top of water column than on the river bottom, these little oysters have had the time they needed to grow and mature to our satisfaction.
They have distinctly bright green shells, and they are a visual example of how much more food is available on the surface of the Damariscotta. The green tint is due to the phytoplankton that has adhered to the shell, which is the very same phytoplankton that these oysters feed on. They are 3", the perfect size for every oyster eater.
Shipping in counts of 36, these oysters will be available only to ship this week, so please select 8/28 as your delivery date when checking out.
They were excellent!
They were great! Perfect size, good salinity, great taste!
these were without questions some of our favourite oysters to date. Just the prefect balance of salty sweetness . Bravo!
Since we can’t travel now, we ordered Glidden Point Gems for a treat at home. They arrived on time, packed perfectly. A short shucking time and we were enjoying tasty oysters from our favorite farm! Excellent!
Yum Yum Yum Fantastic!
