Christmas oyster box
We'll be selecting the freshest, plumpest, most slurpalicious Sydney Rock Oysters from one of our favourite North Coast farmers for our Christmas oyster boxes. Choose from either our 5 dozen or 10 dozen box, and then add extra boxes if you need to make up larger orders.
All our oysters are sold live (unopened) so you can shuck them 'to order' as you want them over Christmas, and they'll be as fresh and juicy as they day they were harvested. Shucking your own oysters is easy and even more fun if there's a group of you! See the video on our home page for simple instructions about how to shuck an oyster.
Each Christmas order comes with a free oyster shucking knife, so you're all set to go when you get home. If you need to order extra knives, go to our knife collection and simply add what you need to your cart.
Orders will be delivered on Christmas Eve so they are as fresh as possible. If you are in Ballina, we'll drop to your nominated home or business. If you live outside Ballina, please nominate your nearest collection point when ordering and we'll deliver there. To make it easy for you, we'll text you when we've dropped your order at your nominated collection point, so you know when they are available.
Your oysters will be packed with a food-safe gel ice pack in an insulated re-useable, recyclable box. Being rock oysters, they are a fairly robust oyster, and will sit quite happily in temps up to around 18 degrees for a number of hours. However, if we are dropping to your home and you are going to be out for the entire day, please leave a large esky out so we can pop them in there for some extra protection.
When you get your oysters home, pop them into the fridge in their insulated box. Normally we say the fridge is too cold for live oysters, but over Christmas in the Northern Rivers when temperatures can soar, they'll be happy enough in their box in the fridge - just put them in the warmest part - up the top, somewhere close to the front. If however you're fortunate enough to have a cellar or a wine fridge, your oysters will be even happier in there!
Live native rock oysters have a long shelf life, if you follow these simple care instructions. Expect to get around 10-14 days from harvest date from your oysters. But seriously, are they going to hang around that long?
