Salt Water Farms is a carefully sighted shellfish farm, producing a sustainable crop in the East Passage of Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. In this location strong tides wash billions of microscopic plankton over long-line suspended oyster trays. Tall sets of trays containing the oysters swing in the currents as the virginica oysters filter the lush food supply. The taste is quickly salty yet finishes mild. With 3 to 3 ½ inch distinctly managed shapes and deep oyster cups, this is Rhode Island’s “Number One” oyster…. these are oysters of legend. Available year round. An American Mussel Harvesters exclusive.
