About The Farm

The oyster farm is located on a 300-acre farm adjacent to several thousand acres of conservation land and state parks.

Located in St. Mary’s county on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Hollywood Oyster is minutes away from the National Oyster Shucking Championships – this is oyster country!

The Patuxent River is the deepest river on the East Coast and is over a mile wide where Hollywood oyster farm is located. Hogs Neck Creek has a clay / sand bottom and is lined with fossilized rock – Giving the oysters with our signature taste!

Hollywood Oyster farm sustainably contributes to the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay with its millions of oysters filtering waters and by its creation of habitat in and around its thousands of growing cages.

The Farmer

Tal Petty started growing oysters on weekends at his family’s weekend farm and soon had dozens of cages and thousands of oysters that he shared with friends.

Foodies consistently commented on the unique and delicious taste of the oysters. Tal began the oyster farm permitting process in 2010, as new Maryland regulations promoting oyster aquaculture were unanimously approved by State legislature.

Tal had an ‘aha’ moment in 2013 and moved from Bethesda, Maryland to the oyster farm – he hasn’t looked back. He met his wife, Na, visiting an oyster farm in Thailand where she was his translator. Na left a successful marketing business to move to Hollywood, MD. The couple travels frequently promoting Hollywood oyster brands.
