We take pride in hand-culturing abalone from egg to plate! Red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) start their lives in our Hatchery, where we spawn on an ongoing basis. It takes several years to grow an abalone to market size (~100 grams) – that whole time our team is hand-feeding giant kelp and other live native seaweeds that are cultured in tanks at our Farm.
Abalone have been treasured for millennia not only for their delicious, healthy meat, but also their beautiful shells – with gorgeous banded colors on top and mother-of-pearl on the inside, abalone shells were prized for jewelry and decoration.
By sourcing and preparing our abalone, you are supporting a family-run farm – thank you and enjoy!
