Topneck clams are hardshell clams with a sweet briny ocean flavor.  These are a size in between Littlenecks and Cherrystone.  Since they are a bit larger, they are slightly chewier than Littlenecks. The topneck clam’s larger size makes them great for stuffing and broiling.

  • Our Topneck clams are harvested along the Atlantic coast of New York and delivered live.
  • Topneck clam stocks aren't depleted or experiencing overfishing.
  • Topneck clams are excellent served raw.
  • Cherrystone, Topneck, and Littleneck clams are all the same species of Atlantic hard-shells or quahogs. The name refers to the size.
  • The shells were once highly valued and used as currency for Native Americans.
  • To clean, or purge the clams of sand and sediment.  We recommend soaking clams in salted water in the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking.
