The Dockendorffs, proud family farmers
The Dockendorff family started as wild harvest farmers, but quickly found their calling in cultivating oysters. The bulk of PEI oysters are harvested from the west end of the Island, making these northeastern blondies even more unique. A multi-generation farming family, the Dockendorffs take great pride in their work—their daily dose of satisfaction comes from seeing their prizes floating on the farm.
The Gritty Details:
Wild caught seed is grown in floating bags and flipped often to air dry the oysters and remove fouling organisms. Flipping the bags also tumbles the shells to promote uniform shape. Time to Market: 3-4 years
