“Like fine wines, oysters take on the qualities of the environment in which they’re raised. Water temperature, salinity, season, the geology of the watershed, currents, tides, and growing methods work together to produce oysters that are unique to each of Maine’s farms.
While no two varieties are identical, there are some common threads that make Maine oysters a shuck above the rest. With nearly 3,500 miles of pristine, rugged coastline, Maine is the perfect place to cultivate and harvest the best oysters on Earth. Our cold, salty ocean water is rich in nutrients that oysters love, giving Maine oysters a crisp, briny, buttery, sweet flavor.
The Maine Oyster Trail is the first interactive, incentive-based oyster trail in the U.S. and features more than 80 Maine oyster businesses, each of which offers one-of-a-kind experiences. The Trail’s interactive trip planner allows you to build your own custom trail based on different types of experiences and regions you’re interested in checking out.”
