The shores of the Barnegat Bay consist of nearly a million acres of dense forest and sugar sand, better known as The Pine Barrens. Beneath and within this forest is a vast aquifer (Kirkwood-Cohansey Aquifer). Fresh aquifer water meanders its way to The Bay where it's met with the salty waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Sugar Shack Oysters grow on a high sandbar of sugar sand. Dazzlingly vibrant shells and a taste that is more reminiscent of New England waters than mid Atlantic. Sugar Shacks start off with a hit of salt and finish with a lingering sweetness.
Growers Matt Gregg, Erik Gross, Dylan Parks, Kayla Racanelli, Liam Andersen, & Kelly Giannetto of Forty North Oyster Farms start the growing process in floating cages that manicure and prune the shells, they are sorted in a tumbler to strengthen and clean the exterior before being planted in trays directly on the bottom.This direct contact with the substrate gives Sugar Shacks their vibrant shell design.
