The Oyster Farm

The farm utilized for harvesting New England Superior Oyster products was originally 150+ acres, of which 19 aces has been donated to the Audubon Society to form the Bellamy River Wildlife Sanctuary. This area is surrounded by one of the largest stretches of conservation land in all of Great Bay. The farm, which has been in the family for three generations, has been used to grow and harvest a variety of delights over the years, including being a creamery, raising rabbits, cows, pigs, chickens, growing vegetables, beekeeping, and now including oyster farming (aquaculture).

Our Process

New England Superior Oyster is committed to producing fresh and clean oysters with a consistent size, shape and taste indicative of the local Seacoast area of New Hampshire. We accomplish this while also doing our part to keep our oceans healthy and thriving. 

We are able to produce a supreme product by carefully adhering to strict harvest times as well as through the development and implementation of our proprietary farm management methods. 

Harvesting Oysters

Because of the particular climate in the Northeast, oyster harvesting in this area is a slow and cold process. It takes about 2.5-3 years for an oyster to grow into a full-size adult, but we believe that our oysters are well worth the wait! 

Cleaner Taste

During our meticulous farming and harvesting process, our gear never touches the bottom of the rivers. Instead, it sits off of the bottom on short legs, which allows our oysters to grow faster, and to develop a much cleaner taste as they are never in contact with the muddy bottom.

Consistent Taste

Our farmers work diligently to ensure that the taste of each oyster is just right. Through constant sorting and a rigorous harvesting process, we can successfully produce a consistent size with a deep cup and extraordinary flavor. This consistency in taste offered by New England Superior Oyster aims to establish a standard for all oyster farms along the East coast.
