Richard Loose - Brancaster OystersRichard Loose started farming oysters in the 1970s. Now, almost half a century later, Richard is still doing what he loves best, where he loves best - oyster farming in the unspoilt North Norfolk coastline. It was in the mid 70s when he was given some oyster seeds to try on his father’s mussel beds, and from that moment on I was hooked. It took about 10 years for my oyster farm to become viable, and soon after I decided to give up the mussel farming and focus purely on oysters. Every year I put small seed oysters onto the beds, and from there it’s just a case of tending and nurturing them until they reach maturity. This process can take anything from 2 to 2 ½ years. I buy the pacific rock oyster larvae, which comes from a hatchery where the environment is controlled, so I know exactly where my oysters have come from and I know they are going to be of the highest standard.
