Behind the Beach Life: Pleasure House Oysters

HomegrownBay Life

Learn about the man behind Pleasure House Oysters – Chris Ludford, a beloved local, full-time firefighter and part-time oyster farmer who has turned his passion project into something visitors can enjoy. He wanted to give locals and visitors the opportunity to learn and experience what goes into growing and farming oysters, as well as teaching the importance and impact that they have on keeping the waterways clean. On his tours, you’ll learn about the history of the river that you just can’t find in history books. Since Chris’s farm is run solely by himself and two firefighting buddies, you can see the pure muscle that makes these legends come to life and land on the plates of oyster lovers from around the East Coast.
