Our Products


The Noank Aquaculture Cooperative members focus on growing some of the finest oysters in the Northeast. As the oysters from our region are the most coveted in the world and we are fortunate to have many fine oyster brands, this is no small task.  We take pride in growing the following delicious brands, please ask for them at your local restaurant or market!

Mystic Oysters

MYSTIC OYSTERS

Mystic River Estuary, Noank, Connecticut

Beautiful round shells with a green hue on the outside of the cupped shell.  The inside shell is white, holding a nice plump creamy morsel of satisfaction.  The flavor will vary over the year in terms of which flavor notes are more pronounced.  You will always fine a nice balance of brine, sweetness, and metallic with umami notes ranging from cucumber to nutty.  Mystic oysters maintain their meatiness year round and are always a delight.

Availability is year-round.

“All have a great, balanced brine with a beautifully clean finish, and they are absolute joys to shuck. If only every grower would take the time to let his oysters reach their full potential.”  -Rowan Jacobsen
