We raise the eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) on three acres. The oysters drink in the tides of the pond, beginning as seed in Harbor Pond, reaching maturing in Trims, and finishing in the cooler, deep water off Cormorant Cove. Grow-out method is primarily top culture (suspended floating bags on line), with a portion reaching final grow out in baskets on the pond bottom. They are all tumbled and sorted by hand Great Salt Pond oysters are harvested to order. We are a certified interstate shellfish shipper, making same day deliveries to restaurants and retail shops (contact us to set up an account). Find us at the Block Island Farmers Market on Saturdays (May to October).
