In the spirit of spring finally arriving, we revisit one of the installments in our "Farm to Fork" series, where Tremont 647 chef and owner Andy Husbands takes us to farms, fields and markets to look for the best ingredients New England has to offer. It was around this time two years ago that we set out in search of crassostrea virginica - or Eastern oysters - at Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, where they're harvesting and hatching hundreds of thousands of oysters.
