Tangier Island Becomes Eighth Region On The VA Oyster Trail

Last week Virginia added a few more miles and an eighth oyster flavor to its 250 mile Oyster Trail. The latest region includes oysters grown out in the waters that surround Tangier Island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.

First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe and Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Todd Haymore traveled to the island to make the announcement, which also honored Tangier's heritage.

“This after all is a celebration of the oyster and the people who grow them. A celebration of the families and stories and generations behind this important moment.”
