Judd Evans leads the Blessing of the FleetThe pristine nutrient rich waters of the bay provided the perfect location for growing shellfish. Kiwi’s oysters were soon recognised as some of the finest in the country and were soon winning numorous awards, it wasn’t long before others joined Kiwi in their own Aquaculture endeavour.
Today Kiwi is still involved in the industry but has handed the reins to his only son Judd. What hasn’t changed is the traditional way in which the oysters are farmed. Old school pillow baskets and a good old hands on approach to grading and sorting ensure that the quality remains at a premium.
