MVOF is a mission-based festival that aims to drive long-term awareness of Martha's Vineyard, and Massachusetts farmed oyster and native fish profiles locally, regionally and nationally.
Founded by the folks from Farm.Field.Sea, the Martha's Vineyard Shellfish Group, MV Vintage Wines & Spirits, we gather oyster farmers, the who’s who in the beverage industry, the areas best chefs, and a fantastic cadre of special guests to celebrate bounty from the sea.
We aim to quench the ever-growing appetite for a cultural event that marries food, education, and music. We hope guests take away a deeper understanding of this incredible Bivalvia - their culinary versatility, health benefits, and real positive environmental and ecosystem impact.
We give back!
A portion of its proceeds to the MV Shellfish Group fledgling Shell Recovery Program. This program reduces and recycles shell waste from the Island's waste stream and provides a local source of shell for shellfish restoration and, improves shellfish production which in turn enhances local water quality. All shells from MVOF will be recycled for their program.
MVOF is committed to collaborating with community organizations to bring you a 360º experience and facilitate lasting collaborations between local seafood farmers, local businesses, the public, and non-profit organizations. . Among our collaborators to date: Martha’s Vineyard Fisherman’s Preservation Trust, Martha’s Vineyard Museum and the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce. Check back as our family grows.
