Tasty Harvest Shrimp is a family-owned, family-run business that focuses on the absolute quality and freshness of our product. Working locally in West Boylston, MA, we farm raise whiteleg vannamei shrimp in 19 eco-friendly, sustainable, saltwater tank environments that promote natural growth and high quality of life. Utilizing our Zero Exchange Aerobic Heterotrophic (ZEAH) System, we recycle nearly all our tank water (90,000 gallons); we lose very limited water to evaporation and periodic tank cleaning.
As certified MA wholesale dealers and members of the Wachusett Chamber of Commerce, we offer our customers here in the Commonwealth, the highest quality product. We never add hormones or antibiotics to our water. We simply add salt to create a brine that is almost identical to that of the shrimp’s natural, pollutant-free habitat. This guarantees that our shrimp are always available to you healthy and fresh—never frozen—at their peak of quality and flavor right out of the tank.
It is very common that imported and wild-caught shrimp are normally frozen, thawed, and refrozen before finally reaching you weeks to months later. As harvested shrimp ages, it loses flavor and quality. In contrast, Tasty Harvest shrimp is the cleanest and freshest saltwater shrimp you will ever taste. We offer it year round, and will deliver shrimp fresh to businesses in Boston, the North Shore, Metro West, Central Mass, and parts of Pioneer Valley.
