Who: Island Creek Oysters
Where: Duxbury, Massachusetts
One hot sunny day last week, I drove to Duxbury, Massachusetts to find out how oysters grow. My destination was the Island Creek Oyster farm, an oyster farm set in the cold, salty water of Duxbury Bay, about 30 minutes southeast of Boston. For years I've slurped oysters from their shell with little knowledge of how these bivalves came to be, but that was all about to change.
