Taste the Chesapeake on a Half Shell
Raised in the Chesapeake – where Atlantic seawater mixes with fresh water tributaries – our signature Golds are prized by oyster lovers for their distinct merroir and golden hue. A fusion of salt and sweet found in every deep cup. Available in four varietals.
Medium salinity followed by a firm texture finished with a progression of marine inspired flavors including a floral sweet melon. (Large)
Our proprietary flavor infusion: A “smoked” oyster on the shell. Robust, flavorful and one-of-a-kind, oysters are finished in a smoked sea-salt infused water. High salinity with a subtle smoky flavor, coupled with a firm texture which finishes with a burst of earthy fruity sensations. (M/L)
High salinity paired with a meaty texture transitions to the enhancement of the Chesapeake’s unique, melon-sweet merroir. (Medium)
Full-bodied with robust salinity. Finishes with sweet mysterious undertones. (Medium/Large)
Hoopers Island Oyster is a strong example of the role aquaculture can play in helping to clean up the Bay. From hatchery to table, Hoopers Island employs the latest technologies to produce millions of oysters that filter millions of gallons of Bay water during their grow-out period.
