About Johns River

Dave and his crew at John's River Oysters utilize a variety of growing methods including cages, floating bags, rafts, hand picking and even scuba diving on both the Johns & Damariscotta Rivers to produce a world class oyster.   

Dave's oysters start in floating bags in the calm, briny waters of the Upper Damariscotta.  They are then moved to the John's River where they are planted on the river bed and grown free range until maturity.  The blending of the two rivers nutrients combined with multiple different growing methods for each oyster result in a hardy bi-valve with a complex taste profile that is sweet, creamy and briny!
