From the Grower

Norm Bloom came from a family of oystermen dating back to the 1940s in Norwalk, CT.  Norm has been oystering since the age of ten and learned from two of the best in the business; his father, Norman Sr. and his uncle Hillard Bloom, twin brothers and co-founders of Tallmadge Brothers Oyster Company.In 1994, Norm decided to break from the family business and founded Norm Bloom and Sons, LLC. With a single scow and a modest crew of three, Norm spent countless hours on the water doing what he loved most, harvesting and farming oysters. What started out as a small operation has now turned into one of the largest oyster farms on the east coast.
