Farming Overview: Lowcountry Cups are raised from local ACE Basin seed in floating cages. The cages suspend the oysters at the top of the water column where they stay out of the mud and have plenty to eat thanks to the 7ft tidal swings.
Once every 4-6 weeks, the oysters are taken out of the water and run through our tumbling machine to knock off the brittle shell and help them develop more meat and a deeper cup. At harvest, Lowcountry Cups range from 6 to 12 months old.
