Slow Food Orange County Aqua Farm Tour
Scallops have eyes. Blue ones. Offer a strand of kelp to an abalone, and it will grab it from your hand - reaching out from under its shell with its muscular foot. For those of us accustomed to seeing such creatures only on a dinner plate, the shellfish at the Carlsbad Aquafarm are very much alive.
The 5-acre business has been sustainably raising oysters, mussels, abalone, brine shrimp and different species of algae since 1985. John Davis, Carlsbad Aquafarms owner, calls it a "living reef you go out there, you come out of the water and youre alive with things." The aquafarm's products go nationwide to chefs, restaurants, and wholesalers; the aquafarm also raises seahorses, seaweed and octopuses for aquariums. After the tour, stay with us while Chef Thomas Ryan shucks oysters and prepares mussels for us to enjoy right from the farm  cant get much fresher than that!

This is a Slow Food members only event.
