Available Positions

Oyster Farmer: Full or Part Time

Location: Shacklefords, VA

This role entails a myriad of different tasks all related to growing and harvesting oysters. Our farmers care for our oysters by running our upwellers, working cages, operating our tumbler, harvesting, culling, bagging, & boxing oysters. The farmer also has a whole host of repair jobs to do to cages and equipment. It is a hard job but very rewarding. The ideal farmer is someone who wants to work outdoors on the beautiful York River and has a strong passion for the environment. Oh yeah, and no wimps need apply.

Oyster Shucker: Part Time

Location: Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Richmond

We add a little flare for special events with our oyster shucking station. We are busy building our roster of Shuckers who can be called upon to work the events we routinely book for weddings, graduations, corporate events, gallery showings, etc. Shuckers must be handy with an oyster shucking knife. You also must enjoy chatting up your guests at the oyster shucking station who will want to learn about our sustainable oyster farm. If you enjoy interacting with people and like working part time for special events, this is the role for you!

Oyster Driver: Full or Part Time

Location: Shacklefords, VA

Are you a road warrior? You can apply your driving skills in this role by transporting our tasty oysters via refrigerated truck from our farm in Shacklefords, VA to Northern Virginia/DC or Richmond. You will get to meet a bunch of fantastic chefs and restaurant owners who are awaiting our shipment. Plus you get to educate the restaurant staff about our awesome farm. Drivers also help restore the Chesapeake Bay by bringing oyster shells back from the restaurants so they can be dried and replanted back in the York River. This shell provides critical habitat so baby oyster larvae can “set” on the old shell we place back in the York River.
