Penn Cove Shellfish, Pride of the Pacific

Established by the Jefferds family in June of 1975, Penn Cove raises a variety of shelled delights and pride themselves on their exquisite looking and tasting oysters. Its location is what makes its shellfish superior: Penn Cove is close to the Cascade Mountains and its geographical shape captures the freshest mountain river waters, rich with minerals.

The Gritty Details:

Beach-grown and subjected to wave action to harden shells. Intertidally grown - goes dry at low tide, which strengthens adductor muscle. Time to market: 3 years.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 3.3% varies by tide < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: Medium tides and swift currents created by the narrow channels of Hood Canal
  3. Bottom Makeup: Sand and rocks
