Location: Hogs Neck Creek – Patuxent River – Hollywood, Maryland (Southern Maryland)
Size: approx 3″ with a cup
Farming Technique: Hollywood’s grow from oyster seed in our hatchery until they are about 1/2″. After a 1/2″ they grow inside bags within cages in the water column reaching approximately 2″, upon which they are transferred to tray cages until harvest at 3″. The grow bags keep our ‘babies’ safer from hungry Maryland Blue Crabs.
Why Hollywood: There are holly trees in our woods and fossilized shellfish in our creek. We think the fossils add the minerality to the sweet mossy taste of a Hollywood Oyster.
Flavor: Sweet oyster with tons of complex flavors – mineral and mossy; clean finish.
Farmer: Tal Petty (Founder of Hollywood Oyster Company) and our amazing team
