Our abalone and purple hotchis are hand-cultured at our Farm in Santa Barbara. Abalone are spawned in our Hatchery and grown on-site for several years before reaching market size (90-100 grams). Over that time, they are bathed in cool, clean ocean water and enjoy a hand-fed diet of giant kelp and other live native seaweeds that we farm in our tanks.

Our Purple Hotchis are no ordinary urchins! In a unique partnership between commercial wild-capture fisheries and aquaculture,  purple urchin are collected from the wild, then fattened and finished at  The Cultured Abalone Farm.  Once in our tanks, the urchin have continuous access to a high quality diet of kelp and fresh native seaweeds, allowing them to direct more energy into producing robust, plump uni. This “finishing diet” is what makes them Purple Hotchis – uni that is consistent in quality, flavor, and yield.
