Our Carolina Gold oyster is 2 inch to 3 inches long, with a beautiful deep-cupped shell! This is a result of our floating bag farming technique. These gold delicacies are packed with meat! We grow our oysters in a high salinity area, which gives them a salty taste with a twist of sweet! Taste the true gold of Eastern North Carolina with these oysters.
Flavor Profile: Refreshing, salty, and sweet.
Size- 2 to 3 inches

How we grow our oysters
Carolina Gold Oysters are grown in the wild, just like any other wild oyster! Oysters feed off the natural plankton and algae organisms that already grow in the water. Carolina Gold Oysters grow in a floating bag system. This system has floating mesh bags that hold the oysters just below the surface in the water column. To have a general idea, the water column is measured from the bottom surface of the body of water to the top surface of the body of water. This area of the water column is proven to be the highest quality of food provided by Mother Nature. Because Carolina Gold Oysters are growing in the water column, they never touch the mud, which is preventative of being gritty and muddy when harvested.
A Carolina Gold Oyster, a 10 to 12-millimeter seedling to a full 3-inch oyster, takes between 6-9 months (fastest growing) and 10-18 months (slowest growing). An oyster that grows in the mud takes about 3 years to grow full size.
