Last Call: Barnstable Oyster will stop harvesting on Jan 15th!

It’s been a fantastically briny ride, but all good things must come to an end. We’ve received word from our friends at Barnstable Oyster that they will stop harvesting oysters after January 15th. (Something about dangerously icy conditions in the creeks near Cape Cod…imagine that.) On the other hand, one perk of the colder water is that the oysters are storing up glycogen (sugar) for the winter, which means these oysters have an incredible peachy sweet flavor. They’re in peak condition now, so call your sales rep and order extra Barnstables while you can. We’ll keep you posted when they start up operations again in spring!
