grown in the clean, fertile waters of the Damariscotta River, which for thousands of years has been renowned for some of the world’s best oysters. Our oysters feed on naturally available phytoplankton. We use no artificial feeds or chemical additives. In fact, oysters have an amazing capacity to filter the water and actually improve water quality by removing excess nitrogen and carbon from the water. We take our role as environmental stewards very seriously and in 2010 we switched from bottom culture to raising all of our oysters in OysterGro™ cages. This eliminated the potential for ecological damage to the river bottom from repeated dragging as well as to the water column from the effects of increased turbidity caused by constantly re-suspending bottom sediments.
