About The Oyster
About Mere Point Oyster Farmers
Nurtured in the rolling waters of pristine Mere Point, Maquoit & Middle Bays, these medium sized oysters present a crisp, dense meat with high salinity and a clean bright finish. From nursery to harvest, they are grown in these nutrient rich, Casco Bay, bays where large tidal exchanges offer a diverse variety of phytoplankton for healthy growth, and colder waters for shell strength and excellent plump meats. Combined with multiple handling's in the tumbler and hand selection, Mere Points come to harvest with strong beautiful shell, durability, and a classic Maine brininess.
