    January 26, 2013

    Few things are as elemental as wood and shellfish… humans have been using both for a long, long time. At Hama Hama we carry on this tradition, managing the beach and the uplands together to support livelihoods, create beauty, and provide sustenance. It’s a chop wood / carry water / eat oysters kind of life. […]

    Today is an absolutely gorgeous day, fitting for one of the first daylight lows since the fall. All winter the guys have been going out on the flats in darkness, at all hours of the night, to pick oysters and dig clams. There are still a couple of strings of nighttime tides this year, so […]

    Oyster Stoutness

    January 10, 2013

    What do you do when you find a massive oyster? Feed it to your friends, of course! Last week Brenna and Erik from Hog Island stopped by for a night of revelry and mischief. Naturally, the power went out, so we sat in lantern-and-firelight and caught up on all things oyster. (These three oysters filled […]

    Just another day on the farm, you know, hanging with celebrities.

    December 7, 2012

    Kimberly Schlapman loves ersters! She and her band Little Big Town (which just yesterday was nominated for a Grammy!) are touring in the PNW and today Kimberly visited our farm to film an episode for her GAC cooking show Simply Southern.

    Branching Out

    November 20, 2012

    This spring we put on our mad scientist hats and headed into the woods. Our prey: fir needles. Our purpose: jelly. The fir-jelly project was a long time coming. We discovered that fir needles were edible a few years ago, after reading about a Douglas-fir-Champagne sorbet made (once!) by our friends at Olympic Mountain Ice […]

    November 9, 2012

    Oyster party madness is in full swing, which means that for the past couple of weeks we’ve been traveling around the Northwest shucking oysters and drinking wine and pretending that it’s work. In late October, we turned Nick, Louie and Juan loose on the Flying Fish Oyster Frenzy, and from all reports they did justice […]

    November 2, 2012

    Hello again! How many oyster farmers does it take to build a website? Definitely more than one.

    “A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk / Along the briny beach”

    February 20, 2012

      Practically from the get-go, the year-old Walrus & Carpenter was hailed as one of Seattle’s best restaurants. The New York Times has written about it twice (in the travel section and magazine). GQ and Bon Appetit both named it one of the 10 Best New Restaurants of 2011. Along with Boston’s Island Creek Oyster […]
