About The Oyster
About Moondancer Oyster Farmers
Started in 1985 by Bill Mook on the Damariscotta River, Mook Sea Farm and their oysters are the gold standard for the Maine Oyster Industry. What started initially as a hatchery has grown into a 20+ person operation. The farm has a drive to push the boundaries of oyster growing and harvesting technology. Indeed, their hatchery engages in extensive scientific research to help create a more sustainable and efficient product, and partners with the University of Maine and other environmental organizations to share data and employ R&D interns. Their grow process is systematic and detail driven, enabling them to produce a high volume of quality oysters.
Moondancer Oysters have a distinct sweet-salty taste profile duality. According to the farmers, their oysters provide a "briny kiss" followed by a "sweet glow." You can enjoy these fresh Maine Oysters shipped directly to your door in a variety of our products. Sourced directly from the farm, the story of a perfect Summer afternoon in Maine starts and ends with Moondancer Oysters.
