Hello Oyster Lovers,
I am so excited to announce a visit to Forty North Oyster Farm in Mantoloking, NJ! Named after the latitude of the location, the farm is relatively young but produces fantastic oysters. I've been in touch with bayman Matt Gregg for a while now, and after the devastating damages dealt by Hurricane Sandy, their rebound and success has been truly remarkable. They're eager to host us for a farm tour and boat ride, to show us how oysters are cultivated from tiny spat to raw bar beauties. We'll also do some tasting and grilling afterwards at the boatyard.
I've reserved a van to transport us to the farm, and we'll meet at 10:30 am on Saturday, Oct. 12th at CC Car Rental (430 W. 37th St, b/w 9th & 10th Ave) to set out on our journey. The drive will take about 90 minutes.
This field trip will be $66.50, including transportation. If you'd like to use PayPal instead of Amazon Payments, just send me an email. Our group is capped at 12, so if you're interested in joining the fun, sign up today before we're out of space! Note: refunds will not be issued for this event, so please be confident that you can make it.
See you there!
