Shipping & Pick-Up Policies


Regional Pick-Up

To keep our oysters readily available and fresh, we currently offer five regular pick-up locations and other ad hoc locations in Virginia for our customers’ convenience.

Our regular pop-up pick-ups are at the following locations:

  • Weekly
    • Lancaster, Virginia
  • Monthly Pop-Ups
    • Fredericksburg, Virginia
    • Alexandria, Virginia
    • Loudon, Virginia
  • Quarterly Pop-Ups
    • Richmond, Virginia

Because we harvest our oysters on-demand, pick-up orders must be placed by 10 pm EST on Thursdays to guarantee your order. This ensures we deliver the best tasting delicacies of the Bay. We frequently bring extra with us, so feel free to reach out after the deadline to check our availability.

Farm Pick-Ups

While we love visitors to the farm, due to our small family farm nature, the impact of weather, and harvesting restrictions, we typically need at least 2 days of notice for a farm order to guarantee it; this ensures we have the time to harvest your oysters at the time of your order and that we’ll be available to meet you when you arrive.

We offer regular pick-up hours Saturday and Sunday between 9 am and 5 pm EST. We also offer other pick-up times by appointment.

Shipping

Our oysters are shipped from our farm on the Rappahannock River in Lancaster, Virginia. Due to our rural location, our working farm, and our dedication to providing the freshest oysters available, we ship our oysters on Wednesday fresh out of the briny waters of the river.

We care deeply about the environment, so our oysters are shipped in biodegradable and recyclable insulated boxes with biodegradable chill-packs to ensure consistent and safe delivery to your door.

To keep our shipping cost low, we offer both overnight and 2-day shipping to all locations in the continental US. We provide extra insulation and chill-packs to ensure our oysters arrive chilled, fresh, and ready to slurp. Shipping cost will be calculated at checkout based on delivery location.

You will receive an order confirmation and notification when the product is shipped with tracking information.

All orders will ship UPS at this time. Please be warned that all major carriers are at capacity and no longer guarantees delivery times; if you need oysters by a certain date, consider overnight shipping and/or ordering the week prior.

Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii, APO/FPO, or PO Boxes.
