Eagle Creek Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics

Eagle Creek Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the Hood Canal oyster appellations in Washington State. They are raised by the bag to beach method which combines two oyster farming methods. Rack & bag oysters are taken from their pampered environment and put into the beach cultured environment during their last 6 months before harvesting. This allows them to “toughen up” a bit, giving them stronger, less brittle shells and firmer meats.
