Basket Island Oysters

Grow Site: Casco Bay

Taste: Rich with sweet and salty flavor

Wolfe Neck oysters are grown by The Basket Island Oyster Company that got its start with 10,000 small oyster seeds in 2012. Mark Green, whom holds a PhD in Oceanography was inspired to start a farm after researching the impact of ocean acidification on small bivalves and then realizing the important role shellfish aquaculture can have on helping clean up the environment and reduce ocean acidification! An operation that has now grown to 4 members, Wolfe Neck oysters begin their lives in cages and then are spread onto the tidal flats of Broad Cove for their final grow out.
