A family run business since 1986, Ward Oyster Company is located in Ware Neck,Gloucester County, Virginia, where they ship nationwide as well as sell to retail customers at the facility. One of the largest aquaculture farms in the state, Ward produces their own oyster seed at its hatchery and then transfers them into cages near the mouth of the Ware River, with currently nearly 30 million oysters in production. Because of the salinity at that location, the oysters are not too sweet and not too salty….just right, giving them the nickname, the “Goldilocks of Oysters”. A sustainable seafood company, Ward harvests oysters the day they are ordered, giving you the freshest “Bay to Table” experience.
