OYSTER OF THE WEEK
Usually only available for our wholesale customers, this week we're making Iron Islands and Aphrodites available for purchase to ship to you. Aphrodites and Robinhood Coves are shipping for delivery Tuesday 11/24. Please select 11/24 as your delivery date.
Robinhood Coves are grown by the Georgetown Island Oyster Cooperative, which was started in 2017 and comprised of 12 different farms. The co-op was started by fishermen, mostly clammers and lobstermen in an effort to diversify their livelihoods and combat climate change. Robinhood coves are farmed in a salt water cove that provides the perfect mix of cold ocean water and rich nutrients from the extensive salt marsh at the bottom of the cove. They have a delicate brine, and a crisp, mineral finish.
Aphrodites are grown by Krista Tripp in the Weskeag River, which feeds into Penobscot Bay of Midcoast Maine. Krista grew up lobstering in the bay, and now captains her own boat out of Spruce Head in addition to growing oysters. Aphrodites grow out in floating cages on the surface of the Weskeag, and are a clean, bright, saline tasting oyster, due to the proximity to the ocean.
