The Francis family has owned and operated their lobster pounds and wharf, buying from the local fishermen since their inception in the ’60s. "Through a desire to provide an alternate and sustainable use for our lobster pounds, we ultimately decided to give oysters a try. Tucked up into Dyer Bay, our farm sites are surrounded by Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge giving us an ideal location sheltered away from outside disturbance." 

The Gritty Details:

Oysters are received from the hatchery and placed into floating mesh bags where they will reside until they are harvested. Other than storing in raised bottom cages for winter, our oysters are grown on the surface for the entirety of their grow-out.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: High
  2. Tides: Large 12 ft. tides 
  3. Bottom Makeup: Silt, then gravel and sand bottom
