Indian Lagoon Oyster Company
About Indian Lagoon Oyster Company
Indian Lagoon Oyster Company was founded in 2020. Our goal is to produce the tastiest oysters along the Gulf Coast. We’re a family-run business that uses the latest sustainable oyster farming techniques to grow delicious oysters in the pristine waters of Indian Lagoon.
Indian Lagoon, near historic Port St. Joe, Florida, has been renowned for producing high quality oysters for centuries. There are numerous Middens near the farm that date back millennia, underscoring the area’s ideal location to farm oysters. The water in the lagoon flushes daily with tides and has multiple freshwater inlets creating perfect conditions for oyster growth. There is an abundance of microorganisms as a food source. The salinity ranges from 28-40 parts per thousand.
Indian Lagoon Oysters are best described as Umami, fatty, and earthy. We think they are absolutely delicious!
