Boomamoto Oysters from Cape Cod Massachusetts.
We stumbled upon Boomamoto oysters almost by accident. Our staff would take home these beautiful golf ball-sized oysters that grew as deep as they were long. They are completely full of meat and we couldn't figure out how to describe them. Our farmers best description was a West coast style oyster with an east coast taste. Boomamoto was born as a Barnstable kumamoto. Make no mistake these are an east coast oyster full of brine but are Cape Cod Oyster's homage to a Japanese style West Coast Oyster. Because they're such a strong robust oyster, shuckers rave about how easy they are to open.
What was once an accident at the farm has now become a target. We're constantly perfecting how to produce Boomamoto oysters both at the hatchery level and on the farm through different methods of husbandry.
