Our Pemaquid Mussels are grown using methods that preserve the environment and eco systems that surround our farm. We practice regenerative aquaculture daily. Our mussels create habits for sea life while providing a safe and delicious food product. We use biodegradable tags, bags and least amount of packaging to ship our mussels nationwide. We support other community organizations that preserve the environment.
