Duxbury Bay, MA

Model Ts, once the runts of Standish Shore's farm, are now the darlings. Because these oysters were on the small side, they were grown out in trays. Big, briny, and great on the grill, these beauts are decadent + full of heart.

Ben Lloyd, Oyster Dreamer

Ben dreamed of owning an oyster farm for over sixteen years. In 2001, he founded Pangea Shellfish Company, a distinguished oyster and shellfish wholesaler. Selling oysters was satisfying, but the bay called to him. Nine years later, Ben fulfilled his dream by purchasing Standish Shore Farm, naming it after the Standish Shore Monument overlooking Duxbury Bay. The first crop of Standish Shore Oysters was harvested in 2012. The oysters' quality and flavor were delicious, and even though Ben now grows more than 2.5 million oysters each year, he makes sure every one of his oysters are perfectly devourable.

The Gritty Details:

The “T” is for Tray Grown. 2mm seed is upwelled in May. It’s then moved to nursery bags where they remain protected until the following April. From bags it’s transferred to our custom oyster trays for grow out. Tumbled often in cement mixers to promote a hard, uniform shell.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 2.9% < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: 10 foot tidal range of nutrient rich waters
  3. Bottom Makeup: Silted tidal flats. Tray grown, off-bottom
