TOM’S COVE AQUAFARMS is proud to offer the finest and freshest shellfish harvested from the cool, clear waters found around the historic seafood town of Chincoteague Island, Virginia. Our farm raised clams and cultured salt oysters are grown in the waters adjacent to beautiful Assateague Island National Seashore, home of the world famous Chincoteague wild ponies.
Chincoteague Island, located on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, has a long storied history linked to fishing, seafood and shellfish. For over 150 years, the cool ocean fed waters surrounding this enchanting island have yielded some of the finest shellfish found along the East Coast of the United States. So strong was the demand for island seafood by northern markets, that during the Civil War, Chincoteague unanimously voted to stay with the Union.
