The original tide-tumbled oyster. Perfect, manicured shape and mild flavor due to constant tidal action.

    Real nice shell. Mid-size, tumbled plump, mild and creamy. I tried plain and ended up mixing that creaminess with a touch of cocktail sauce and horseradish, then back to raw, and back again, at Shaw’s oyster bar, Chicago

    My new favorite west coast oyster. Not too “complex” Perfectly briney, amazingly creamy, Bonus points: Easy to shuck (helpful when you’re doing 100’s) and pretty to look at zebra striped undersides. Keep up the good works ChelseaFarms!

    A very good oyster, have tried several times over many months.

    Sweet start, mineral, briny finish.

    One of my all time favorite oysters. Great flavor, good meats. Grown in “flip-bags” in Eld Inlet by the Lentz family. Some of my all time favorite people.

    Stunning little tumbled Pacifics with a mouthwatering pickled-cucumber brine to them. The white, black, and purple stripes on the deeply scooped shells make them feel like jewelry (or Baltimore Ravens swag). Some seasons, the meats can be a little thin and watery, but the flavor is all there.
