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.

Cape Cod Oysters begin their days as seedlings, feeding in the nutrient rich waters of North Bay on Cape Cod. From there they are hand grown and harvested in the premier merrior of Barnstable Harbor. The strong ebb and flow of ocean tides twice a day supply our oysters with a diet rich in minerality and salinity creating a distinctive ocean-in-a-shell flavor that can only come from the waters off of Cape Cod
Boomamoto Oysters are available year round. The winter months produce some of our best. Growth rates slow and the oyster shells get stronger.
