Help restore the native Virginia Oyster, the health of the Rappahannock River & save the Watermen’s heritage and culture through this unique initiative with the Oyster Company of Virginia (OCVA) and Friends of the Rappahannock “Oysters for Life” campaign!
Through a specially designed offer, each “Friends of the Rappahannock/Oysters for Life” package sponsored one time for $175 provides two baker’s dozen of fresh Virginia oysters to be delivered to the Friends of the Rappahannock for their annual spring event, ‘From the Rappahannock for the Rappahannock’ at OCVA’s Topping facility every year in perpetuity! For every 1000 oyster cage packages sold, that’s 26,000 Virginia Oysters helping to raise funds for the Friends of the Rappahannock each year!
Each package provides the funds to build an oyster cage, supply the oyster seeds, co op with a watermen’s family for creating sustainable jobs while helping to restore the native oyster population and accelerating other fish and reef habitat! These cages act as mini reefs!

Only PURCHASE “Oysters For Life” through the Friends of the Rappahannock website to help support our river protection programs and to make sure your cage is working to improve the health of our Rappahannock River.
Each “Friends of the Rappahannock/Oysters for Life” package comes with a beautiful OFL/FOR Certificate with the name of the member/new member/family/friends/businesses, etc, including a unique Friends of the Rappahannock Cage number that will be placed on the oyster cage and transferred when a new cage is required! Therefore, each one time support will last in perpetuity!
