Tides at the farm:

Knowledge of tides at the farm will help you predict the oyster and clam supply. When the tide is higher than five feet it means that less of the beach is exposed for harvest. Days when the tide height is below five feet are good days for us to harvest at our farm. View the Denman Island tide chart of our main farm site.

Happy Customers

“I have been buying oysters from Mac’s for about 30 years. Big ones, little ones. In the shell and shucked. Once I bought a bag of baby oysters and seeded my own beach. Mac’s oysters are FANTASTIC!! I could eat them every day. Today my wife and I feasted on a full 32-ounce bin of mediums, fried in butter. Heaven. Thank You Mac’s!!!!!”
