This year we have 5 fantastic oyster providers for the festival. Each provider will bring something unique to the festival.
We are very excited to have some local providers on board for 2019!
Three generations of the Hemming family have been growing and processing oysters in the pristine waters of NSW. Keith Hemming started farming Sydney Rock Oysters on the Hawkesbury River from 1951. Andrew also farmed Sydney Rock Oysters on the Hawkesbury River from 1974 and in 1991 expanded the growing business with the purchase of Casanova Oysters, which was then located on the Eastern side of the Entrance Boatshed. In 2013 we moved to our current location in Berkley Vale to further expand our premise with our continued wholesale and retail growth.Our philosophy remains unchanged with our guarantee of the freshest oysters and seafood.

A bit elusive, old school - you wont find much of them on social media or the interwebs - but rest assured these some mighty fine oysters!
