Since 1981, Jim Rose has been growing and harvesting ridiculously delicious oysters and littleneck clams in Wellfleet harbor, Cape Cod. Wellfleet offers the best of both worlds - a beautiful rugged coastline on the ocean side with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. And a calm, protected harbor side with ideal conditions for growing shellfish. Jim is a third generation Wellfleet native and his deep pride and respect for Wellfleet and its beautiful natural resources, his understanding of the landscape and terroir, and his relentless passion for delivering the freshest and best darn shellfish available are what you enjoy when you taste Rose Shellfish.
Rose oysters are deep, meaty, slightly sweet and full of delicious briny liquor. The clams are a taste of the Cape - salty and slightly chewy. Fantastic raw on the half shell, in a clam boil, clams casino, chowder…the possibilities are endless.
Jim grows and harvests your oysters and clams to order and delivers from his farm to your table. Doesn’t get any fresher than that.
Jim not only farms the ocean, he also farms the land. Stop by Rose’s Farm on Rte 6 in Wellfleet for the freshest produce and beautiful fresh-cut flowers.
Rose Shellfish is HACCP and Servsafe certified, fully insured.
