Ram Island Oyster Profile

Ram Island Oysters are a Virginica oyster from Long Island Sound in Connecticut. They are a wild Bottom Cultured oyster which are hand-harvested by divers and are available in a variety of sizes. I can’t find any additional info on this oyster so please leave info in the comments area if you know more about it or have contact info for the farm.

Blue Island Oyster Co. does distribute Ram Island’s to Manhattan and nation-wide.
