When Can I order White Stones
Order in advance by selecting the desired delivery date when checking out. Certain dates are unavailable due to Holidays. We recommend a delivery date 1 day prior to an event. Unfortunately we are unable to offer Saturday deliveries.
Handling Oysters Upon Receiving your package
Oysters are delivered cold, and alive via Fedex. It is important to maintain both of these things prior to serving. We like storing oysters in a bowl in a fridge, or a cooler loaded with ice. Avoid standing water and rough handling. Transfer oysters from your package to a cold environment ASAP
Only serve live oysters. Once an oyster has expired the shell opens up and the oyster drys out. Keep unshucked oysters cold and serve on ice.
How will I know if an oyster is no longer fresh?
When an oyster "expires" the shell will start to open. Before consumption make sure the shell is closed tight!
What happens if I do not put them in a cool environment right away?
As mentioned we ship the oysters in gel-packs that help the oyster stay at the right temperature. Depending upon the weather, the oysters should remain at temperature for a few hours. In the colder months they will remain at temperature longer.
