Tim has been oyster farming for a long time. In fact, he first started working for a local oyster farming identity in ‘79 and then kept getting drawn back to the industry until eventually buying his own place.
Tim says there is definitely something satisfying about growing his own product. He catches the oysters as tiny juveniles and grows them all the way to market. It’s a wholly grown natural product! Having a consistent supply of juvenile oysters means he can choose the best to on-grow for sale.
Wild Rock Oysters may not be a big operation, but it’s amazing what can be achieved with the help of family and friends. When Tim and his son get a break from oyster farming they take people out fishing on their charter boat. They just love showing people what their local environment has to offer.
