These are grown on the historic Watch House Point oyster grounds located on the southern tip of the Eastern Shore of Virginia near the Atlantic Ocean. This area is known for its beautiful waters and great tasting shellfish. These are great roasting oysters, as their shells can be difficult to open for the novice shucker.
Flavor Profile: salty with hints of cucumber and melon
Grown in the salty waters surrounding Chincoteague Island and Assateague National Wildlife Refuge, a genuine Salt Water Cowboy raises these tasty treats. A slightly larger cultured oyster than most, prepare your pallet for bites brimming with invigorating salt.
Flavor Profile: As Jimmy Buffet would say, "Salt! Salt! Salt!"
Our finest oysters, these are harvested from the salty, ocean flushed waters around Virginia's Eastern Shore. Tumbled by wind and tide, they offer unparalleled shuckability, uniformity, and a higher meat-to-shell ratio.
Flavor Profile: High salinity up front, fading into bright, sweet hints of celery and grass.
These smaller oysters are approachable, but add the salt and sass the Tidewater area of Virginia is famous for with the perfect balance between sweetness and brine. Their beautiful shape and deep cup were so difficult to produce that oystermen often referred to them as "little bitches" and the name stuck! As Shakespeare would say: "Though she be but little, she is fierce." - A Midsummer Night's Dream
Flavor Profile: Salty with hints of mint & cucumber.
