I stopped by Glidden Point Oyster Farms a couple times this summer. I really enjoyed their oysters - fine selection and quality! The staff is also very friendly and I am now sporting my t-shirt from the farms.

We found Glidden Point Oysters last fall on a midweek short trip to Boothbay. Awesome oysters. After having some & always asking origin, we visited to take some home. Going back soon for more. As good as they ever get!
