Grassy Bars are delicious!

Described as refreshingly briny, with an unmistakable taste of watermelon, our oysters are carefully raised in the southern reaches of Morro Bay where salt waters of the pacific meet the estuary. Daily tides bring cold, salty seawater into the bay giving our oysters a briny, robust and satisfying flavor.

Founder George Trevelyan is a marine ecologist with 30 years experience working in sustainable, environmentally sound molluscan aquaculture. Grassy Bar began in 2009 when he “bought the farm” and got beached on the back bay with a bevy of bivalves. Much to his relief his son Charles came to help, along with his crew of Grassy Barbarians, and together they jealously guard and tend the beds of succulent shellfish flourishing in the tidal currents.
