Misty Point Oysters are grown in floating cages which means they are constantly moved by both the tides going in and out as well as the wind moving the water's surface. This increased friction means the outer fringes of the oysters' shells are worn away to form a deeper cup to hold the meat. We love on our bivalve babies from conception to shipping: practicing hands-on parenting throughout their existence.
- Tides:The pristine waters along Virginia's Eastern Shore, where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean give our oysters their superior flavor
The Ballard family has raised oysters since 1895– and they absolutely love it. Today, the 5th generation continues this fine tradition using sustainable farming and harvesting practices. Their reputation for quality, consistency, and service is unsurpassed.
