Capital

Capital

In an uncompromising mission to create the very best oyster, we have delivered a truly superior product. Our 5th generation, master oyster farmer, Tom Bloomfield, has personally fostered every single oyster grown in our beautiful, Pacific Northwest farm – the most sought after waters in the industry.

Capital Oysters are cultivated in the pristine waters of Spencer Cove, Harstine Island, WA using the suspension tray and float tumbled system used for Shigoku oysters. Each tray has a float on it which causes the oysters to be naturally tumbled twice a day by the rise and fall of the tides.

The trays are attached to long horizontal lines which are positioned in the middle of the water column. The oysters never touch the bottom of the bay but are allowed to be exposed to the air as the trays spend some time floating on the surface of the bay before being submerged again by the rising tides. This exposure increases their shelf life as they learn to clamp tightly shut during this daily process. The result is a consistently shaped and manicured shell with exceptional depth and a shell hardness which shuckers will appreciate.

Since Capital oysters never come near the bottom of the bay but are always suspended in the nutrient rich waters they develop a clean, crisp ocean flavor.
