Down a narrow road in South Kingstown, RI sits Potter Pond, a quiet knee high body of water home to Matunuck Oyster. In 2002, Perry Raso acquired a lease for a commercial shellfish operation on the pond. Today, it is a seven acre farm home to oysters, scallops, and clams. Raso also operates a bustling shoreside restaurant serving his shellfish along with produce from his vegetable farm just on the other side of the pond.
