Glidden Point Oysters are grown in the renowned Damariscotta River of Mid-Coast Maine. The Damariscotta River is home to some of the finest oysters in the world, and these Glidden Points are up there with the very best.
Glidden Point takes their time to grow their oysters. The process starts with oyster seeds which are grown in bags at the surface of the river. Benefiting from the cold-nutrient rich waters of the Damariscotta, the seeds grow slowly into oysters that can be planted at the bottom of the river. It is in the riverbed where these oysters develop their delightful deep cup and mature to market size.
They remain at the bottom for 3-4 years before they are harvested by hand, typically by a Scuba Diver. Every part of Glidden Point's oyster growing process is carefully thought out and handled. This long process has led to these Maine Oysters gaining national recognition.
Our Glidden Points are available to buy online for overnight shipping, local delivery, or curbside pickup in Maine.
Glidden Point Oyster Farm Est. 1987
Glidden Point Oyster Farm was established in 1987 by the work of a dedicated marine biologist who believed that the only way to grow an oyster was to grow a great one. It took many years of trial and error, but by obtaining some of the most ideal growing areas on the Damariscotta River it appears she discovered the simple formula: Place + Practice = a premium oyster.
