When Minterbrook Oyster Farm owner Kent Kingman took over the reins from Beverly Wiksten in 2011, he bought an industrial pillar of the Key Peninsula community with roots that date back to 1931. The Minterbrook plant is located in a park-like setting with a beautiful backdrop of the ever-changing tidelands of Minter Bay with Mt. Rainier framed in the background. With an amazing variety of wildlife all around (deer, eagles, salmon, seals and birds of all sorts); people love to come and enjoy the beauty of the setting besides taking home some of our excellent shellfish.
