Hog Island Oyster Co.


About 50 miles north of San Francisco on Tomales Bay is the Hog Island Oyster Company. I was lucky enough to stop by on a particularly sunny morning to sample some of the freshest oysters I have ever had. The farm is open to the public and a lovely destination for an outdoor picnic.  I arrived before they opened and was welcomed to one of their picnic tables to await the morning truck of oysters to arrive.


Hog Island allows visitors to bring their own meal additions to be grilled on-site and eaten with a plate of oysters. You can sit all afternoon surrounded by the beautiful bay scenery and oyster beds as well as enjoy watching the team shuck fresh oysters.
