Our journey began in Wilmington, NC, where an admiration for the sea and its treasures led us to embark on an exciting venture. With a passion for sustainable aquaculture and a desire to make a positive impact on our local community and the environment, we founded Cape Fear Oyster Company. Our dream is to cultivate the finest North Carolina oysters while promoting responsible mariculture practices.

We are driven by the belief that the future lies in building a sustainable and resilient food system. We envision a world where our oyster farm becomes a family enterprise, passed down through generations, nurturing the ocean and providing quality, homegrown oysters to our consumers.

Through our journey, we aim to raise awareness about the profound benefits of responsibly harvested oysters, not only as a delicacy but also as crucial contributors to the health of our coastal ecosystem. Our goal is to create a lasting legacy that not only sustains our business but also protects and preserves the oceans that we hold so dear.

Join us on this exciting adventure as we work tirelessly, trading in neckties for waders, to bring you the finest and most sustainable oysters. Follow us on social media or sign up for our mailing list and be part of our mission to provide you, our valued consumers, with top-quality oysters all year round.

Thank you for being a part of our story.
