Ninigret Pond, Charlestown, Rhode Island

Take a bite out of this peach. Ningret nectars are petite, deep-cupped beauties. Rhode Island produces a uniquely smooth brine with undertones of peat, smokiness, and butter. The finish is laced with a mineral sweetness that pairs perfectly with whiskey, beer, or a crisp white.

Rob Krause: with a little help from his friends.

After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science and Biology from Springfield College in Massachusetts, Rob Krause moved to Rhode Island with plans to start an oyster farm. He took graduate courses in Aquaculture at the University of Rhode Island and during this time, he worked on Moonstone Oyster Farm with John West, who now owns and runs the Cedar Island Oyster Farm with his wife, Cindy. The two worked together for six years, and now as owners of independent farms and both members of the Ocean State Shellfish Cooperative, remain close friends.

The Gritty Details:

Seed is started in a solar-powered upweller, suspended from a rafter for 12 months, and then spread on the bottom for another 12 months. Harvested by diver or rake.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: High
  2. Tides: Ninigret Pond; small tides with abundant freshwater.
  3. Bottom Makeup: Hard-packed sand.
