Farmed in Scotland's far northwest on an artisanal, traditional oyster farm, these fantastic oysters are now available, pre-ordered, at Logie Steading Farm & Garden Shop. A real treat for Christmas .... they really are seriously delicious ... here at Logie we have the (very arduous!) task of sampling food that we sell so we do know how good they are!!
Patrick and Lucy Blow founded Cape Wrath Oysters in 2014 in the remote Kyle of Durness, a narrow inlet on Scotland’s most northwesterly point.
We are passionate about oysters and their great sustainability credentials. Together we have around fifty years of broad experience in seafood, from fish farming in Africa and around the globe to wild-capture expertise, including the sourcing, quality, processing and retail of farmed and wild seafood.
Oysters eat natural foods that they filter from the sea. Farming them is hard work but can be lots of fun. We don’t even mind working outside in the wild weather that Cape Wrath is famous for.
Oysters take three to five years to grow to market size in the UK and our artisanal business is still small. Currently we can produce around 150,000 oysters each year. Our team of three is steadily building the farm’s capacity and we aim to soon be able to produce 400,000 oysters each year, using old-fashioned sustainable methods.
Every oyster farm and its produce is different, each influenced by the balance of sea and fresh water, the foods available to the oysters, the water chemistry, temperature, site characteristics and the weather. These factors interplay to impart Cape Wrath Oysters with their own distinctive characteristics and sweet, briny flavour.
