Where are Scorton Creek's Grown?Barnstable Harbor: Scorton Creek Oysters Origin: Barnstable Harbor, Massachusetts
How long does it take to grow a Scorton Creek Oyster and how are they grown?Due to the amazing growing environment in the Great Marsh & Barnstable Harbor, our Scorton Creek's take approximately 15 months to grow to an average market size of 3-4 inches. Scorton Creek Oysters is a 3-acre farm located in the Great Marsh of Sandy Neck. Scorton Creek uses a variety of growing methods to produce their oysters. Seed is started in a floating upweller system, then moved to the farm where they continue to grow in bags or suspended tubes. Once large enough, the seed is moved to trays, suspended bags, or placed on nets directly on the seafloor to finish growing out.
