There are few foods that bring people together in the way that Oysters do. They have been the centerpiece in small and large groups for many generations. Although there are many mysterious foods that are equally as delightful, there is something about the oyster that is quite different.
With a little thought on this subject, I realize the reason we gather around this animal has little to do with what is inside the shell. The reason lies in the laborious process of getting to that unencumbered morsel.
Though carried out by one person, the sport of shucking is a social one. Wet, messy and sometimes challenging; this sport requires focus and determination. But most of all, it calls for camaraderie. In my family, the best time for this is around the holidays where we naturally gather to celebrate. The oyster becomes a means to fellowship with the ones we love the most. Something we can do and enjoy together. Something that is more satisfying in the work we put in together than the end result.
When you gather for this holiday, join us and consider some oysters for your family's feast. We harvest daily for every shipment. And to make things super easy, we created a date picker that allows for you to order today and select a delivery date. This makes life easier for you, but it also helps our small farm plan ahead during the busy shipping season. Jump online and order your fresh oysters today.
Cheers to a healthy and happy holiday.
