Te Matuku Bay's oysters

It’s all in how you grow them

te matuku bay2 Farming oysters is just as hard as growing anything. Oysters need as much attention as meat or produce grown on land.

The guys at Te Mataku Bay have chosen a great location with clean water and plenty of food. They grow their oysters in baskets so they have plenty of room to get their share of water and food. The oysters grow evenly and fatten faster than oysters grown on more traditional sticks. At Te Mataku Bay they get better flavoured oysters that are easier to handle so they can maintain better quality when you buy them. These are Pacific oysters at their best.

Unlike other oyster farms, they don’t try to harvest in December and January when the oysters spawn and get skinny and not so good.

When you’re next at Waiheke, call by the shop at Ostend and treat yourself. In the oyster processing room you can see your oysters being opened, cleaned and packed ready for your dinner. They don’t come any fresher than that.
