Natives are the truly seasonal oysters that are only available when there is an 'r' in the month eg September through to April. The native oyster has a flat round shell, and the oyster itself is firm and meaty with big earthy flavours.
Dredged or handpicked from the seabed at low tide, the oysters are then purified in tanks at the fishery for at least 42 hours, before being graded by eye and hand, making sure they are in top condition before being gently packed and sent to you.
We recommend that you keep the oysters in the fridge with a damp tea towel or tissue on top. They are best eaten as soon as possible after delivery but should last up to three days if cared for properly. If you select to have an oyster knife, we will send you our favourite wooden-handled oyster knife.
