Our oysters are farmed in the pristine waters of Colville Bay, which is located at the mouth of Souris River, in PEI. The oysters are grown on the bottom of the bay; the bottom is an almost perfect balance of silty and soft sand that helps create the environment for growing an unforgettable oyster, with extraordinary taste. Algae in the water combined with the brisk current create the Colville Bay oysters’ distinctive aqua-green shells and their salty-sweet flavor. Colville Bay is the ideal environment for growing a truly unforgettable oyster.
