FRESH FROM THE NEW HAMPSHIRE COASTLINE
A Deerfield native, Jonathan Bunker has decided to bring a little salty flavor from the New Hampshire coastline back to western Mass. His farm, Bayside Oysters, is located in Great Bay, close to Portsmouth, NH. With the limited coastline of the small granite state, where farming oysters has only been around for a decade, Bayside Oysters has taken advantage of the untouched resource that these waters offer.
The cold, nutrient-rich waters of Great Bay provide our oysters with a bountiful food source. Great Bay also has some of the strongest tidal currents on the east coast. These fast flowing currents create a constant tumbling effect, requiring a strong, rugged shell to survive. The combination of plentiful food and rugged conditions produces a plump meaty oyster filled with the perfect combination of a sweet and briny finish.
