“Here we go... into the brave future.”

John was born and raised on the eastern end of Long Island, New York, an area steeped in seafood and shellfish tradition. An avid fisherman, and surfer, he has always had a deep love and respect for the ocean.

In 1983 John established the Hog Island Oyster Company. Beginning with a 5-acre lease at the north end of the Bay, John and partners developed what has become one of the most celebrated oyster farms in North America. Today, Hog Island leases 160 acres throughout Tomales Bay and produces over 3 million oysters and clams each year. Hog Island sells directly to customers, restaurants, and retailers throughout California.
