Heafitz Farm Oysters **Oysters For Conservation**
Heafitz Farm Oysters are grown in collaboration with Glidden Point Oyster Farms and Midcoast Conservancy in the Sheepscot River. The conservancy is responsible for placing over 14,000 acres of land into conservation in the Medomak River, Sheepscot River, and Damariscotta Lake watersheds. It was a natural next step and partnership for the organizations to pair up and grow oysters together. Proceeds from Heafitz Farm Oysters benefit Midcoast Conservancy's land and water conservation work.
Heafitz Farm Oysters are surface cultured, grown to around 3" in the Sheepscot River just west of the Damariscotta. The Sheepscot is a larger estuary with greater saline input than the Damariscotta due to the breadth of the river mouth to the Atlantic Ocean, giving them a strong briney punch.

Glidden point never disappoints! Their oysters are delicious and we order them for every special occasion. Shipping is very quick and the oysters are fresh. We tried our local seafood store’s oysters and they were dry and filled with sand crabs (GROSS). Idk how Glidden point does it but their oysters are PHENOMENAL!
Delicate but briny and delicious! Arrived on time and packaged nicely!! A definite do over!!
These oysters had a great balance of briny and flavor.
