About Iron Island Oysters
Since 2014, Nice Oyster Co. off
Woodward Point in the New Meadows
been producing Iron Island Oysters. The
Company is the brain child of an extraordinary duo, brought together by a love for the
Dana, a member of the Marine
Extension Team at UMaine’s Darling Marine
, is a passionate promoter of marine
agriculture outreach and education. He is an
instructor in a program where experienced
oyster farmers teach novices the basics of
the practice, functioning very much like “a
community garden,” according to Dana.
John, a retired engineer, was a member of
the program’s second ever class and quickly
fell in love with the community, noting the
camaraderie; “there’s always someone to
clean your bags for you.”
Iron Island Oysters can be enjoyed in the New Meadows Collection
, featured in a Taste of Maine Kit
, or bought in bulk. Shipped overnight directly to your doorstep, Iron Island Oysters can bring you a taste of the ideal Maine vacation, one which Dana and John "unintentionally enjoy everyday."
