Distinctive Oysters
on Block Island

Big changes coming soon!

We will be changing our name soon to Great Salt Pond Oyster Company!

Same great oysters, new name!

Block Island's Finest!

Sun Farm Oysters was started in on a quarter acre in 2006 and sold its first oyster two years later. The concept of the farm was to demonstrate that Block Island’s economy did not have to be so tightly tied to tourism. Block Island has distinct advantage when it comes to ocean-based farming. The foremost is our water quality which is the best in Rhode Island.
