Littleneck clams are the smallest of the hardshell clams with a mild, briny ocean flavor and very tender flesh. Similar to their East Coast cousins, cherrystone and topneck, but a smaller size that is slightly mellower and sweeter. 

  • Our littleneck clams are harvested along the Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida and delivered live.
  • They are named after Little Neck Bay on Long Island.
  • Littleneck clam stocks aren't depleted or experiencing overfishing.
  • Littleneck 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.
  • 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.
  • The colorful shells were once highly valued and used as currency for Native Americans.
