Last Saturday we drove up the coast to Hog Island Oyster Co. The oyster farm, located an hour and a half north in Marshall, Calif., is a perfect weekend adventure for a day full of sunshine, brews and oysters.
Here’s the deal: you bring a picnic lunch, beer, wine and friends and they supply a lovely picnic table on the water along with grills, lemons, hot sauce, etc. Fresh oysters are available on location for purchase.
Each picnic table can be reserved for an early or late afternoon party. As luck would have it, the people who reserved the table for the late afternoon were moved so we were able to stay for a few more hours to continue our deep discussion on how oysters reproduce.
Short story shorter, a visit to Hog Island Oyster Co. is the perfect way to spend the day enjoying beautiful scenery, good eats and good beers!
