Lindisfarne Oysters

About lindisfarne oysters

Lindisfarne Oysters is a family run business and was established in 1989. Their incredible pacific oysters (Crassostrea Gigas) are grown on the seashore within the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, and regularly appear on the menus at Moor Hall.

They begin life in a hatchery, and when about the size of a thumbnail, are transferred to the oyster beds in the sea off Lindisfarne. They lie in fine mesh bags lying on intertidal trestles, using only the natural resources of the cool, pure Lindisfarne waters for their food; and can take up to four years to reach maturity.

After a 42 hour purification period, the oysters are packed into chilled boxes and supplied with storage & opening instructions if requested. Fresh oysters are available all year round, direct to your door.

Lindisfarne Oysters can be eaten raw, served on the half shell with a little lemon juice and black pepper or a dash of Tabasco. They can also be cooked, either in or out of their shell.
