Growout

Once the oysters reach about a half inch in size–usually in July or August–we either plant them on the bottom or put them loose into trays. Broadcasting them is great because it creates a rugged shell and complex flavor, but results in lower yields. Tray grown oysters such as the Row 34’s and Aunt Dotties have a more delicate taste and appearance reflecting their protected upbringing. We get a higher yield out of these trays but because Duxbury Bay often ices over in winter, we have to pull the trays and the oysters out and hold them in a root cellar from January until March when the threat of ice has passed.
