From our beds to your bench. 

Pacific oysters have a sweet, succulent flavour that is truly addictive. Grown using the best of aquaculture practices, our oysters are sustainably farmed from wild, naturally caught spat. We then deliver them straight to your kitchen door secure in Mother Nature’s own brilliant packaging. 

From the Pacific to your palate.

Farmed in the unpolluted, inter-tidal zones of the Mahurangi River, Mahurangi oysters are sweet and delicious. The key to capturing that flavour is freshness. We only sell live oysters in the shell. Harvested in the morning, we deliver them to you by overnight courier.

Fresh whole-shell oysters delivered to your door.

Enjoy the freshest possible Pacific oysters grown in the Mahurangi Harbour, packed live and whole. To get them to you at their tastiest, Jim and the team are often out on the water at 5.00 am harvesting to order. We then process and deliver them overnight to your door secure in Mother Nature’s own brilliant packaging. All our oysters are shipped whole-shell, with a seven-day-chilled shelf life.


Oysters are no longer just a seasonal delicacy.

Don’t panic, we now have oysters available for Christmas, weddings and those summer BBQs and long, lazy picnics. What a relief!

Naturally caught Pacific oysters are at their full-flavoured, meaty best in winter till early summer. We harvest and sell live naturally caught oysters from April through to December when our oysters are fat and creamy. But because we won’t compromise on our quality, we don’t sell naturally caught oysters between January and March. This is their growth and recovery period and oysters eaten during this period are less appealing. 

However, in order to keep the oyster-obsessed among us content, we now have triploids oysters available over the summer. These are hatchery grown and do not mate during the summer months. These oysters come from stock that is faster growing and more resistant to disease. 

Safety and customer satisfaction first.

Harvesting can be stopped due to rainfall which can affect the availability of our oysters. Ministry of Primary Industry guidelines dictate that oyster farms must close for three days after more than 25mls of rain falls over a 24-hour period to ensure no runoff from land contaminates the oysters.

The Mahurangi Harbour has an impeccable health record. We participate in a joint monitoring scheme to ensure the pristine quality of the waters. Yet another of the many reasons why Mahurangi oysters are so highly regarded, both in New Zealand and overseas.

Mahurangi Oysters – Tasty, sustainable and truly unique.

Each and every oyster farm has its own distinct taste reflecting its tūrangawaewae. With wine, it’s called terroir, with oysters we refer to it as its merroir. The seawater, currents, tides, temperature, algae, rainfall, season, and location are all responsible for the nuanced flavours of our delicious, sweet Mahurangi Oysters, which is probably why Al Brown, among others, is such a big fan.
