“Hog Island Oysters consumed straight from the source might even be... a bit more spectacular.” - Randy F., yelp.com

Pack a picnic, gather your friends and head out to beautiful Tomales Bay for an epic day at the Hog Island Oyster Farm. An oyster lover's paradise awaits you.

Enjoy Your Day at The Farm:

1. Make a reservation. During the summer please book at least one month in advance. Because of our limited space, we fill up quickly. 

2. Bring your own picnic. Please bring your own beer, wine, beverages, napkins and utensils.

3. Stop at the Hog Shack. We’ll have your picnic table and BBQ reserved, sell you tons of fresh oysters and set you up with lemons, hot sauce and a complimentary shucking lesson.

4. Creature comforts.  Don't forget your extra comforts - sun protection, warm layers, cameras and fun gear.

At the Farm, we sell fresh live oysters in the shell (you shuck 'em), hot sauce, a local barbeque sauce, mesquite charcoal briquettes, and ice. We provide chimney lighters for the charcoal and complimentary valet service on busy summer weekends.
