The quintessential east coast clam, the quahog clam (aka quahaug, round clam, hard-shell clam) is much beloved throughout New England. Available in a wide variety of sizes, these clams are the variety of choice for traditional clam dishes like chowders, clam strips, stuffed clams and more. These clams are shipped live, ensuring they arrive on your doorstep fresh and delicious.
Littlenecks – 10-12 per pound
Middlenecks – 8-10 per pound
Topnecks – 5-7 per pound
Generally the smaller the clam is, the more tender its meat. Littlenecks are so tender and sweet that they can be served raw,* while the largest clams are best chopped or ground.
These clams have been stored in a high tech refrigerated flowing seawater system post harvest that keeps them fresher, tastier, and alive longer than other clams on the market. While in this wet holding area, they naturally clean themselves of sand, bacteria and grit by filtering the clean seawater.
*People with compromised immune systems should not eat raw or partially cooked clams.
