"I became the FlipFarm Distributor because I was an oyster farmer who saw aquaculture challenges firsthand."
- Keith Butterfield
With the altruistic hopes of building protected oyster reefs in Casco Bay, I began growing oysters in 2013 with the help of my father as a fun learning project. I learned a lot about the Maine coastline and our Casco Bay waters and eventually decided to become a full time oyster farmer with a bent toward technological innovation. When I discovered FlipFarm, developed in New Zealand by Aaron Pannell, I knew I had found something special.
FlipFarm was the only technology I could find that facilitated scaling my business in a reliable and profitable manner in New England waters. We want to share this technology with you. We believe that all shellfish farmers deserve the highest level of support in implementing the FlipFarm system, and we are committed to providing just that.
