Hollywood and Sweet Jesus Oysters are grown in the Patuxent River, Hollywood, St. Mary's County, Maryland.

St. Mary's County Maryland is home of the U.S. National Oyster Shucking Contest and the U.S. National Oyster Cook off - this is Oyster Country!

The Hollywood Oyster is grown at the mouth of a creek surrounded by over two thousand acres of protected and park land.  

The Patuxent River is over a mile wide at the mouth of the creek and is a few miles up river from the Chesapeake Bay.

Blue crabs, rock fish, terrapin turtles, rays and many other friends share our waters.
