The Beginnings

Our farm was established in 1987 by the work of a dedicated marine biologist who believed that the only way to grow an oyster was to grow a great one. It took many years of trial and error, but by obtaining some of the most ideal growing areas on the Damariscotta River it appears she discovered the simple formula: Place + Practice = a Premium Oyster.


Our Crew

Here at Glidden Point, we have built a community of like-minded individuals who thrive on the challenges and rewards of working on the salty waters of the Damariscotta River.
