the Grower

It all began in Totten Inlet with the tiny Olympia Oyster. Our great great-grandfather found his calling in oyster farming, which began a family legacy that lives on today. 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. 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.
