If you are up for a delicious adventure go visit an oyster farm! Tomales Bay hosts some of the best oysters in California and my favorite spot is in Marshall at the Hog Island Oyster Company, where the moto is “Live to shuck, Shuck to live.”
It was started by 2 biologists in July of 1983 with a family loan of $500 and a borrowed boat. Today, it has transformed to become a thriving 160-acre farm full of oysters and hungry tourists. Be warned! This wonderful gem is getting more popular by the day so you need to make reservations weeks in advance to nab one of these coveted outdoor wooden picnic tables.
It’s rustic, pure and delicious. You can also bring your own wine and/or veggie to throw on one of their many outdoor grills.
The weather is getting colder but that’s clearly no reason to despair. After all, that means that oyster season is right around the corner. Happy Shucking!
