About Harris Creek Oyster Farm:

Any questions? Please email Farmer Alex at alex@harriscreekoyster.com




For Pick-Up:

  • You must pre-order your oysters by the order deadline!
  • Please bring a cooler with gel packs (preferable) or ice!
  • We are using contact-less curbside procedures: wear a mask, you will be asked to open your trunk and cooler (with ice!) and oyster farm staff will drop your oysters in your cooler.

How to Care for Your Oysters:

  • How to properly store oysters: place immediately in fridge and cover with a damp towel. Do not allow to sit in standing water. Avoid rough handling prior to shucking. They’ll stay optimally fresh for raw consumption for 7-10 days from harvest and up to two weeks for cooked consumption.
  • How to properly shuck oysters: use a knife to shuck from the hinge or the bill. There are plenty of video tutorials online or just ask your handy neighbor! You can also use heat (oven, grill, microwave even) to get them to pop open and then cut the meat free.
  • How to properly enjoy oysters: any way you want! Raw, grilled, baked, fried. Naked, hot sauce, lemon & horseradish…the possibilities are endless! This is a chance to get creative with nature’s perfect food.

Why You Should Be Eating Aquaculture Oysters!
