Kusshi Oyster Farm – Our Careful Cultivation Process
As the proprietary grower of Kusshi Oysters, we have the utmost commitment to excellence and consistency. The unique growing process and quality assurance techniques at our oyster farm result in a consistent, high-quality oyster that chefs love and rely upon.
So, when you serve a Kusshi Oyster, you offer your guests a gourmet delicacy of the highest quality.
It can take up to four years for our types of oysters to reach such perfection. During their time at our oyster farm, the pampered little Kusshi is grown while safely nestled in baskets that sway in the pristine, deep and nutrient-rich waters of Deep Bay in Baynes Sound, British Columbia.
Like the delicate and patient creation of a bonsai tree, we cultivate the Kusshi Oysters in a unique and secret process. This proprietary system ensures that the Kusshi’s energy is directed into meat production, rather than into growing a bigger shell. The result is a beautifully smooth, deep shell that is easy to open and overflows with the succulent and deliciously fresh taste of a Kusshi Oyster.
The tumbling process we use ensures that each oyster from our BC oyster farm comes to you with a smooth shell that is incredibly easy to shuck. The tumbling strengthens the shell and manicures the distinctive deep cup.
Only once Kusshi oysters have reached a specific size, measured with state of the art technology, will they be collected. This ensures a product of consistently excellent quality. Kusshi Oysters are harvested fresh to order and shipped off immediately, ensuring quick transit and making these shellfish as fresh as possible when they reach your plate.
