Taylor Shellfish Farms

For over 100 years and five generations, Taylor Shellfish Farms has been growing shellfish in the bays and inlets of Puget Sound in Washington.

Taylor Shellfish Farms operates three shellfish farms throughout the Puget Sound in Washington state.

Family owned and operated, Taylor Shellfish Farms seamlessly combines over a century of experience with modern technology. The Taylor Shellfish name is now a leading supplier of shellfish in North America, and world-renowned for quality shellfish.

Taylor Shellfish honors quality above all else--hand shucking the oysters used in shucked oyster jars, and sorting Pacific oysters for size and quality.

Currently they cultivate more varieties of shellfish than any other farm, including the rare Olympia oyster, and are the largest Manila clam producer in the United States.

In 2006, the host of the show Dirtiest Jobs, Mike Rowe, visited Taylor Shellfish Farms. Not once, but twice!

The Discovery Channel show has hosted two episodes of "Dirty Jobs" at Taylor Shellfish Farms--one on oyster shucking, and another on geoduck harvesting.

Producing and harvesting shellfish is hard work, but someone's got to do it. We're just glad it's Taylor Shellfish Farms.

One taste and you'll understand why the Taylor family continues to harvest shellfish, generation after generation.
