Raspberry Point Oysters, Cultivators of Patience

The crew at Raspberry Point grow their oysters in the crisp, picture-perfect waters of Prince Edward Island, Canada. Theirs are some of the most northern stocks of oysters in North America, often having to saw through the snow to reach them in the winter. Because of this, each oyster takes between 4 – 6 years to reach market size. The company is owned by Scott Linkletter, the dynamic island entrepreneur behind Cows Creamery, an iconic PEI ice cream establishment. 

The Gritty Details:

Top water suspension cages comprised of a series of nets suspended in positively buoyant cages. The bay's cold waters make the oysters grow slower, but promote hard shells. Time to market: 4 to 6 years.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 3.2% < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: Influenced by Hunter River, which supplies nutrients and tumbling currents
  3. Bottom Makeup: Red clay and mud
