Producing great shellfish since 1895

At Ballard Fish and Oyster Company, we love shellfish. For more than 115 years, our family has been producing the best clams and oysters in the world. Today, the 5th generation of the Ballard family is still producing great shellfish and our reputation for quality, consistency, and service is unsurpassed.

Through its extensive history, the Ballard Fish and Oyster Company has acquired some of the best shellfish growing grounds in the country. Both bayside and seaside grounds along the Eastern Shore of Virginia extend from Fisherman’s Island all the way to the Maryland state line.

We are glad to arrange tours for groups or individuals at our facility. Please call us in advance to arrange. There is a fee.
