Spring Creek

Barnstable Harbor, Cape Cod   MapOyster bars nearby

Another quality oyster out of Barnstable Harbor, which has that ideal combination of strong tides of briny Atlantic water and a pristine salt marsh backing the bay. The tides rush in, the oysters feed, and then the water sits in the salt marsh for hours, growing algae and picking up flavors from the marsh. Then the tide recedes and all that earthy water rushes back out, giving the oysters the second half of their diet. That combination results in oysters that are savory and salty but also backed by an earthy depth. Spring Creeks are grown using rack-and-bag and bottom-anchored cages.
