Sandy Neck Oyster Co., A Virtuoso Duo

Matt Bunnell did it all as a commercial fisherman. He started out tuna fishing as a teenager, he then worked a groundfish hook and line boat before dragging for sea scallops. When Matt and his wife Jen decided to have a family, Matt transitioned to oyster farming for a steadier source of income and a vocation where he would would not have to leave for days at a time. Together, they formed Sandy Neck Oyster Company. Their oysters have a distinct sweetness produced by the nutrient rich tides of Barnstable. They are fulfilled by seeing the labor of their love grow into beautiful deep-cupped oysters and being able to share them with others.

The Gritty Details:

Oyster seed is floated using custom "oyster tubes," then moved to larger mesh bags. Time to market: 1.5 to 2 years.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 2.7% < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: 8 to 10 ft. tides - freshwater input of Scorton Creek
  3. Bottom Makeup: Clean, sandy bottom, and large thatch beds
