Iron Island Oysters are ruled by the seasons. In late winter and early spring, before the dandelions bloom, our oysters are surprisingly full, with a mild taste, and a sweet finish. In the summertime, when the swallows are racing in and out of the barn and the young ones are trying out their new wings, you'll find them with a full salt taste and a tang that stands out all on its own. In the fall, around about the time that the leaves have fallen and the wind starts to sneak towards the easterly, the salt remains, but you’ll also get a rich, lasting umami flavor, as the oysters fatten for winter. In all seasons, they are full-meated and have good shuckability.
Our Iron Island Oysters are available to buy online for overnight shipping, local delivery, or curbside pickup in Maine.
The Iron Island Oyster Farmers

"I have been ordering regularly from SoPo Seafood for a couple of months now. I LOVE this service. The product is top notch, the communication great and delivery as promised. Providing my family with the freshest seafood while supporting a small business and our local fishing industry is a Win-Win in my book. If you haven't already, give them a try...you won't be disappointed.
