A true New England grown Easter Oyster that your taste buds will thank you for indulging in.
Plump, sweet and buttery yet briny with an oh-so-crisp sweet finish. While our oysters are great served many ways, on the half-shell with just a few chews unlocks the full power of our oysters' flavor!
Niantic Bay Oysters are grown exclusively in the Niantic Bay. This moderately protected bay is located on the Connecticut coastline and is part of Long Island Sound. With an ideal combination of incredible water flow and nutrients passing through the bay every tidal cycle, our oysters take on the pure terroir of the bay and the greater Atlantic ocean.
Our market size oysters range from 3" to 3.5" and are conditionally available year-round. Buying farm-direct ensures the freshest product possible.
Currently, NBSF operates a private hatchery that enables us to selectively spawn and raise Native Scallops. With the foundation laid, it is clear that this will be the most aggressive attempt to revive this species to date.
Our Scallops first went to market in Fall 2018 and are expected to be available seasonally each fall and winter.
NBSF has been taking steps to contribute to solving the sixty-five-year-old mystery of the near extinction of the Niantic Bay Scallop. During the 1950's, Niantic Bay's scallop population plunged to next to nothing regardless of actions taken by local agencies and concerned citizens. Reseeding in the 90's and early 2000's proved to be unsuccessful in reviving the population for good. Efforts to revive the population continue to this day and NBSF is committed to ensuring the success of these efforts
It is widely accepted in the seafood industry that the bay scallops produced in Niantic Bay are simply the best. So let the anticipation build because we are committed to ensuring that it will be possible for you to try out Niantic Bay Scallops for yourself each fall!
