We’ll meet and have a nice chat about the different types of shellfish we offer as well as how we grow them. Then we’ll get into how to shuck an oyster, with some hands on practice for you if you want! And I’ll also give you my tips and tricks for storing, preparing, cooking, and serving these tasty mollusks! There will be plenty of time left over for you to enjoy some oysters on the half shell at the end and also to answer any remaining questions you might have.
Hi! My family has been farming shellfish in Tomales Bay for 35 years; I’ve been officially here for 5 years, but having grown up in the industry I like to say 26 years of experience... A graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a BS in Agricultural Business and a lot of on the job training I can answer almost all aquaculture questions around. With only 5 shellfish farms in the area I offer unique insights to the industry in general, the local culture, and how we’re different than other aquaculture areas.

A glass of wine or beer to pair with your oysters
I’ll be giving the tour through our retail store and wine bar as well as behind the scenes peeks at our processing facility and property.
