More than 120 years ago, our great-grandfather first harvested oysters in south Puget Sound. Today we — Taylor Shellfish Farms — employ 500 people and are the largest producer of shellfish in North America. We're in Canada and Hong Kong; we have a hatchery in Hawaii and a black pearl farm in Fiji.
Christian values form the foundation of our business philosophy from how we treat our people to how we protect water quality and find new ways to grow shellfish. At the end of the day, it's about faith and family, about relationships with our employees and our consumers. Demand keeps growing, and now fifth-generation Taylors have joined the operation.
