Little neck clams are a staple for seafood lovers on the East Coast. Many people prefer farm-raised little necks versus wild caught, due to quality standards.
We currently carry little necks from Cherrystone Aqua Farms in Cape Charles, Virginia. Cherrystone clams, a U.S.-regulated, farm-raised product, are very clean and virtually free of sand.
Little neck clams measure about 1-inch across the top of the shell. While the small stature of little necks means you have to eat more to account for a full meal, their perfect texture and sweet taste are undeniable.
To put it another way: Many little neck customers would have no problem turning down an offer of top necks. However, few top neck customers would dismiss a chance to devour one of these pleasant little morsels.
