With over 20 years in the oyster business, Raspberry Point Oyster Co produces some of North America’s most sought-after oysters. Beginning in the early 1990’s, Raspberry Point Oyster Co. has blossomed into the company it is today.
Raspberry Point’s leases are some of the most northern stocks of oysters on North America. Because of this, each oyster takes between 4 – 6 years to reach market size.
