To All Oysters

Pangea Pearl Oyster

Willipa Bay, WA
Pacific Ocean pours into Willapa 5 miles away, providing a big oceanic influence on the oysters. This water mixes with fresh water from the neighboring hills in the Willapa River Delta. Oysters sit on the top of the water column, feeding on the freshest algae to photosynthesize.

the Grower

It all began in Totten Inlet with the tiny Olympia Oyster. Our great great-grandfather found his true calling in oyster farming, which started our legacy that lives on today. Since then, every generation of the Taylor family has grown up with a passion for shellfish and for the close-knit communities and rugged landscapes of Western Washington.

Today, the company is led by Bill and Paul Taylor and their brother-in-law Jeff Pearson who have grown our company past the tidelands bringing our product from tide to table. In the last thirty years they have expanded our product line to include geoduck, mussels and a variety of half-shell oysters. They have created a family environment of over 500 dedicated employees, including their children.

One thing we've learned over the years is that consistently producing high quality shellfish requires a long-term commitment to people and place. We are dedicated to our communities, employees and the environment in which we work. We plan to maintain this legacy for many generations to come.
