Tomales Bay is a crooked crevice of an estuary that is borders Pt. Reyes National Seashore to the south and bucolic countryside around the town of Pt. Reyes to the north. It’s a vital part of the Pacific flyway for migrating shorebirds, and the place where Great White Sharks go to have their babies. Needless to say, not much swimming that goes on there. Because of the intertidal activity that washes ocean water through the bay twice daily, and the health of the wetlands and tributaries surrounding it, it is pristine mollusk habitat, and has become a hot spot for shellfish farms. In return, clams, mussels and oysters are filter feeders and a single oyster can clean up to 30 gallons of water a day. We’re excited to partner with Point Reyes Oyster Company to bring you the freshest possible shellfish available from this amazing bay.
