our people the isle of barra find us our oysters our story home

Oyster seed between 3mm & 7mm are placed into our specially designed rearing pods. These pods have been built to allow a carefully controlled flow of water to pass over these tiny creatures allowing them to feed as and when they like. These nursery pods are in a sheltered sea loch which is tidal, allowing a good and sustainable feed source for our oyster spat. The feed is supplied by the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean surrounding this beautiful island in the Outer Hebrides. As the oysters grow they are graded by size.

The faster growing ones are moved to baskets suspended from rafts, in much deeper waters off shore, allowing the smaller, slower growing ones more chance to develop.
