2014 PRIVATE RACK PROGRAM
Thank you for your interest in our 2014 Private Rack Program. We kicked off our first program year last year with wonderful success and are excited to open up some new slots for this growing season.
Each Little Creek Private Rack Holder gets 250 of our finest oysters, attended to in a way that goes beyond what we could ever do commercially. These oysters are handled regularly to help build strong shells for easier shucking, this also helps the oysters grow a deeper cup for better taste and retention of their briny goodness!
We involve the Rack Holder throughout the process including you on the selection of seed oysters, information about the source hatcheries to select from and their various known characteristics. We share when the seed goes into the water as well as updates at regular intervals- how are they growing, what is the salinity in the water, any interesting notes on their growth.
(As they grow, if there are some underperforming oysters, we will swap in prime oysters throughout the growing period to ensure top level quality.)
Monthly reports will bring you inside the process.
We will happily alert the Rack Holder when their oysters have started to move into harvest territory. Some of our holders prefer a smaller oyster and harvest some or all of their stock earlier, while others prefer a large oyster and hold out for multi-season growth. How about a mix? You can take delivery in smaller batches and do not need to pull the whole lot at once.
All of our Rack Holders get a complimentary T-Shirt
and our signature laser engraved oyster shucker
. In addition, we extend a 10% store discount on all items as long as your oysters are under our care. We are happy to give special notice to our Rack Holders when there are Little Creek Oysters available for retail as well. (Current supply/demand has made these hard to come by. We are working on growing our capacity, but quality comes first.)
Rack Holders will also have advance notice of tasting events and other special opportunities to join us.
