Tomales Bay

The Tomales Bay Oyster Company is California’s dean of oyster operations, in business continuously since 1909 (now, however, under new and exciting ownership). It concentrates on Pacifics. While the waters are the same clean, salty ones so beneficial to Hog Island’s oysters, Tomales Bay oysters are bottom-grown (Hog’s are off-bottom), resulting in grungier shells and a stronger flavor. Look for TBOC’s new Golden Nugget oysters, one of the richest-tasting oysters in the country.
