"R" is for Oysters
Any month with an "R" in it means oyster season is here, so pull out your favorite shucking knife and dive into our South Carolina Oyster Guide. If you live along the coast, or like to visit, you know that oyster roasts are as integral to fall as football, fairs, harvest moons, and the coming holidays.
Below you'll find fun festivals, oyster shell recycling information, and a history of our state's once-great oyster industry.
As SC author and oyster expert Vic Burrell aptly explains, an oyster roast is "always a crowd pleaser and follows the theory of entertainment that if you are standing up and eating with your fingers, you've got to be having fun."

SC Oyster Companies
- Bluffton Oyster Company
Shucking May River oysters continuously for nearly a century, the Bluffton Oyster Company now operates on land purchased by the Open Land Trust and the Beaufort and Bluffton governments for preservation. This is the last remaining oyster company on the SC coast.
