Safe Handling Tips

Half-shells image

Fresh oysters half-shells, like the ones above, should be enjoyed right away.

  • Plan to consume Drakes Bay Family Farms Oysters as soon as possible.
  • Fresh oysters should have a pleasant sea-breeze aroma.
  • Store in the refrigerator in a shallow bowl covered by a damp cloth. Do not store live oysters in a plastic bag or tightly sealed container.
  • The shells should be tightly closed. If a shell is slightly agape, it should close after it is tapped.
