Judd Cove Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics

Judd Cove Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from the cold waters of Orcas Island, in one of the North Puget Sound oyster appellations in Washington State. Their shells have beautiful green and purple swirls. 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.

Judd Cove oysters are no longer available as the company has gone out of business.
