Farm Raised Oysters from Canada
Where – Neguac, New Brunswick (on Canada’s Acadian peninsula)
How – Farm Raised
These tasty oysters come from the same farm as another wonderful Canadian oyster – Beau Soleils. According to our friends at JP Shellfish, “French Kiss oysters are essentially pumped up Beau Soleils….the French Kiss oysters spend a couple more years than the Beau Soleils under the watchful eyes of our good friends at Maison Beau Soleil, and are allowed to attain a greater size before harvest.”
