MEET DELICIOUS, THE BOILERPLATE® OYSTER
Its flavor is off the chart. A thick shell, never wasted. Virtually shatter proof. And it's the most versatile oyster. Ever.
ITS SHELL IS VIRTUALLY SHATTER PROOF.
A Boilerplate Oyster is not quickly farmed raised like its aquaculture contemporaries. It's a reproductive, native Crassostrea Virginica oyster allowed to grow naturally wild as it has for more than 5,000 years from beds on the York River near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Its heavyweight shell is 3x the thickness and strength of a typically farmed oyster.
* Each oyster is shucked in our BRC Certified oyster house
OFF THE CHART FLAVOR.
You won't ever need to use words like merroir, minerality or palate to describe the Boilerplate Oyster. You won't have to.
Each oyster yields an ample amount of meat with a distinctively fresh salty taste. Chew it and savor the flavor of native sea grasses. Boilerplate oysters are well known for their distinctively clean, salty flavor that leaves you wanting more without the after taste associated with other varieties.
THE MOST VERSATILE OYSTER.™ EVER.
For decades the rare Boilerplate Oysters have been enjoyed only by Chesapeake Bay locals. Boilerplate Oysters can be consumed lightly cooked, smoked, sautéed, fried, broiled, baked or grilled. It's rugged enough to survive the demand of commercial harvesting and distribution.
SHUCK THE SHELL
SERIOUSLY. You can't eat the shell. We shuck our oyster meat. Then we repurpose the oyster shells by using them to reseed our native oyster beds. We do this to ensure that future generation oystermen and women will be able to continue providing the best oyster meat available for years to come.
We shuck oysters so you don't have to.

The process to complete each order from beginning to end is accomplished within 48 hours. And yes, our Blue Crab meat is BRC Certified just like our Boilerplate Oyster Meat.
