Harvesting 

Southern Cross has four harvest boats capable of filling any order no matter how big or small.
When we receive your order, we send our boats out to the clam leases to harvest to your exact requests.

The boats head out at daylight to harvest, then get back in to tumble and process clams. We see a lot of beautiful sunrises as clam farmers.

Tumbling gets rid of sand, shells, and anything that’s not a live clam. It also rinses and cleans the clams for processing.
The tumbled clams are loaded into baskets,
And hauled into the cold processing room.
