taste the pacific terroir

Eat an oyster. Taste the fresh Pacific ocean tide, the plankton rich waters of the north Hood Canal and mineral rich runoff from the Olympic Mountains - essential elements of the Pacific Northwest that foster the character and flavor of Baywater Sweet™ oysters, Salish Blue™ clams, Manila clams and geoducks. Baywater Shellfish Farms is a sustainable, family-run company on Washington State’s Hood Canal founded in 1990 by Joth Davis. With keen environmental sensibilities and attention to product detail driving the farm’s operations, Baywater Shellfish Farms grows some of the most preferred shellfish found in the Pacific Northwest, tasting of the Pacific Northwest.
