It's been a while since I've posted, but I'm happy to report the oysters are happy, growing bigger and tastier every day, and of course demanding lots of attention!
About two weeks ago Honeysuckle Oyster Farm received it's latest shipment of oyster seed (seed = oysters smaller than market size). The seed comes from a certified hatchery from Maine and are tiny - only 1.5mm (about the size of a grain of sand) when they arrive. They immediately head into the upweller, where they start eating plankton and algae. In the beginning few months, the oysters are growing rapidly and have already double in size!
Summer is off to a good start on the Farm and I hope that everyone has a great summer and is able to find a few Honeysuckles to enjoy!
