Wolf Trap Oyster Company has two private oyster grounds where their cultivation process occurs.
The Wolf Trap grounds are located not far from Wolf Trap Light House, and are currently home to approximately 800 Cages.
Wolf Trap utilizes a different type of cage than most, a Floating Bag Cage. Our Floating Bag Cages allow our oysters to tumble with the tides to create a nicely shaped & heartier oyster shell with a deep cup, providing you with an easier shuck and a fuller meat inside.
Our other grounds are located on the East River/Mobjack Bay and only approx. 12-15 miles from the mouth of the Ocean. (mmmmm….. salty)
These two grounds, though not that far apart, result in the harvesting of two very different oyster flavors.
