the Grower

Walrus and Carpenter Oysters was started in 2009; which grew from a small passion project to one of the most recognized brands in Rhode Island. The goal from the beginning has been to work with the best chefs and thought leaders within the culinary world. The approach is a mix of hard science with a commitment to sustainable seafood. The farm’s main focus is quality not quantity. Our floating bag culture allows us to grow oysters with clean, hardy, shuckable shells while ensuring a consistent size and shape. Our team takes pride in our work creating a high quality, restaurant-ready product. No matter the conditions, we are committed to getting our chefs what they need, when they need it. We have a saying on the farm, “It don’t matter if it’s snowin’ or blowin’,we’re still goin’!”
