We began oyster farming in 1983 with the goal of raising the best quality shellfish in a beautiful location. With a five-acre shellfish lease on Tomales Bay, CA we started growing one oyster, a Pacific variety we call the Hog Island Sweetwater, which is still the star of our show and harvested year round.
Today we raise four of the five oysters found in the Northern Hemisphere, plus Manila clams and Mussels. These shellfish are harvested seasonally or as 'special occasion', a labor of love and an effort that sets us apart. We invite you to stop in and savor the simple pleasures of life.
How we farm our oysters.
This small, hard shell clam with exquisite markings from nature is a treat to steam open or enjoy raw. Chefs love them for their presentation in a dish, and nearly everyone loves their easy flavors: delicate, sweet and just ever so slightly, nutty.
Back to all.
