Cherrystone clams are hardshell clams with a sweet, briny, ocean flavor. Similar to their East Coast cousins, the topneck and littleneck, but their larger size tends to make them a little chewier. Cherrystones are excellent for clams casino, and good for chowder or pasta sauces.

  • Our cherrystone clams are harvested along the Atlantic coast of New York and delivered live.
  • Cherrystone clam stocks are not depleted or experiencing overfishing.
  • 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.
