Heron Islands are grown by our friends and neighbors Colin Brannen and Rod Melanson. They are one of the newer growers on the river, and their farm is just across the river from ours. Heron Islands are surface cultured, and have a beautifully green fluted shell, and great meat to shell ratio. They are full of punchy Damariscotta brine, and a pleasure to eat.

Heron Island Oysters were quite tasty, well shaped shells, somewhat fragile but not overly so. The packaging could be improved. Too much space, oysters “tumbled” inside styro box, some stabilizing filler like crumpled card would improve journey. We ordered 50 (2 bags diff types) and they came in large box, and were very fresh. A treat we will repeat for friends and family!

Heron Island Oysters
Great oysters! Excellent value!! Enthusiastically recommended!!!
Great experience, great oysters!
After visiting the Farm this summer, I’m a Damariscotta oyster fan and treated myself and a friend for Thanksgiving. The Heron Islands we’re outstanding and the order and delivery process was flawless. Also appreciated the grilled oysters with chimichurri recipe for those who needed their oysters cooked.
