WEEK 2: Flying Point
Flying Points are harvested from two growing sites, one in Freeport and the other in the Sheepscot River. The oysters are bottom cultured and drag-harvested. These particular Flying Points are grown at the confluence of the Royal and Cousins River in Freeport. Flying Points have a reliably hefty shell that make for easy shucking. Eric Horne and Valy Steverlynck are the husband-wife team behind Flying Point Oysters. They run a lean, no frills operation and handle all farming and business themselves, along with the help of their children. They’re also some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet.
