Since before the turn of the century, Chincoteague "salt" oysters have been served in the finest restaurants in America and Europe. Because our oysters come from waters fed daily by ocean tides, they impart a highly desirable briny flavor.

Our native species oysters are carefully grown in "off-bottom culture systems, ensuring a clean, uniform shell product. These oysters are cultured in areas that offer optimum growth, yielding a firm meat product. Since they are hand raised in suspended nets, they are free of sand and silt.
