Rappahannock River Oyster Co.
Topping, Virginia
Rappahannock River Oyster Co.'s farm is situated near the mouth of the Rappahannock, where the full force of the river meets the Chesapeake Bay. What makes the location so unique for oysters is its tie to the freshwaters of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Nowhere else do you get such a varied blend, with nutrient rich waters spanning the entire salt spectrum, making the oysters subtly sweet to jarringly briny.
