2017 Wrap-Up


We wrapped up our season on Dec 8. It was an excellent year! Our farm continues to grow and we are expanding into some new crops (oysters and clams are just the beginning).

Keep your eyes peeled-  some extra special canoe-harvested oysters will be showing up around New Years.

Bumper Crop

Our next crop is coming of age!  It is very exciting to see such fast growth. To celebrate, I'm putting together an Open Farm Day in the coming weeks. I'll be offering farm tours and fire-sale deals on oysters bought directly off the farm. Get your canoes and kayaks ready! Stay tuned for details.

Clams Planted!

Many of the littleneck clams I'm growing for my SARE research project are finally big enough to plant in the mud. Though still far from market size, they have grown a TON- from the size of half a sesame seed to more than 1 cm across in overachieving individuals. All this since mid June!

Research Update


Many of the littleneck clams I planted in late June are almost big enough to move from the floating nursery to grow-out bags in the mud. There is quite a bit of size variation in the crop-  I was excited to find a number of individuals that have grown tenfold in length in the last 48 days!
