Here in Virginia we benefit from among the nation’s highest shellfish water quality standards.
Unfortunately our precious Merrior – 607 acres of the Lynnhaven, including our farm, will close April 12th to shellfish harvesting.
The timing could hardly be worse, the Lynnhaven River NOW Oyster Roast is right around the corner and we both were planning to offer Pleasure House Oysters for the second time.
How can you help?
Help us, Lynnhaven River NOW, the City of Virginia Beach, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation & others to ensure the Lynnhaven & her precious Merrior stays healthy so we can continue our work to bring you an oyster befitting of the name and reputation of the world famous Lynnhaven oyster.
