They are grown in the waters of the Core Sound, a body of water recognized by the state for its outstanding water quality. Eat these, and you’ll taste the essence of Down East.

“It was love at first bite with this oyster. Good salt, clear liquor. Excellent for eating raw. They’re easy to eat. Like Pringles.”
