To All Oysters
Duxbury Standard Oyster
Not all oysters are pretty (though we might think so). These are the misshapen oysters from our Standish Shore Oyster Farm. You get the same flavor meat, but the shells can vary quite a bit. If you are shucking and removing the meat from the shells, these are a perfect fit!
- Specie:Crassostrea virginica
- Origin:Duxbury, MA(USA)
- Farmed: 18 to 24 months
- Average Size:3.5+ inches
Signature Duxbury flavor in various shapes & sizes: sweet and buttery with a crisp brine.
2mm seed is upwelled in May, and then placed in Vexar nursery bags until the fall. In October they are planted directly on the tidal flats. To harvest we hand-pick at low tide or drag during higher tides. These are the misshapen oysters that don't make the grade as Standish Shore Selects.
- Tides:Duxbury Bay; 10-foot tidal range of nutrient-rich waters.
- Bottom:Sand and silted tidal flats.
