STEM WEEK – Great Bay Oyster Company Presentation

October 18, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Founded on November 15, 2016, New England Superior Oysters is based in Dover, NH, utilizing the Bellamy River, known for having one of the longest stretches of conservation land on the Bay, as the location of our oyster farm. Sheyne Branconnier, a founding farmer of NESO is an entrepreneur and environmentally conscious native of the New Hampshire Seacoast, and a direct descendant of Captain John Smith, an English soldier, explorer, and author from the 1600s, whose affinity for oysters was well known. Captain Smith once described the prevalence of oysters in the Northeast as being, “on the ground as thick as stones.”
