Lindisfarne Oysters are available for sale all year round. 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; they 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 and opening instructions if requested.
Lindisfarne Oysters can be eaten raw, served on the half shell with a little lemon juice and black pepper or a dash of Tobasco. They can also be cooked, either in or out of their shell.
