the Grower

Matt Bunnell did it all as a commercial fisherman.  He started out tuna fishing as a teenager, he then worked a groundfish hook and line boat before dragging for sea scallops. When Matt and his wife Jen decided to have a family, Matt transitioned to oyster farming for a steadier source of income and a vocation where he would not have to leave for days at a time. Together, they formed Sandy Neck Oyster Company. They are fulfilled by seeing the labor of their love grow into beautiful deep-cupped oysters and being able to share them with others.
