We sell our crabs by the piece, half dozen, dozen, half bushel, and bushel.
We carry Small (#2's), Medium (#1's), and Large.
A #2 is 5"-5.5" which is considered a small crab. A #1 is 5.5"-6" which is considered a medium crab
Half bushels and bushels are a measure, NOT A COUNT! That being said there is no exact number that you will receive. A good estimate for #1's is 5-6 dozen per bushel, 2.5-3.5 dozen per half bushel. A good estimate for #2's is 6-8 dozen per bushel, 3-4 dozen per half bushel.
You are more than welcome to buy as many dozens of Large as you wish but we DO NOT sell them by the half bushel or bushel.
A small crab is 5-5.5". A medium crab is 5.5-6". A large crab is 6+".
Yes you can order your crabs live. A preorder is recommended because as soon as we receive our shipment they head straight for the steamer.
Yes! You can preorder your crabs up to a week ahead of time. If it's a holiday (ex. Mother's Day) we especially recommend that you order your crabs ahead of time because we sell out fast!
We have our very own custom rock salt blend from J.O. Spice. Yes, it's delicious. Once you try it you won't ever go back to old bay. It's the perfect amount of heat and not too salty.
Yes you can but there is an up-charge.
While you can never know the exact amount you need we find that 10 people per a bushel of crabs is a safe estimate.
