The Jersey Oyster Company cultivates mussels on ten hectares of beach concessions in the Royal Bay of Grouville.

We grow these mussels from seed on wooden poles, a traditional method prevalent in the Brittany and Normandy regions of France. They are called ‘Bouchot’ mussels and are ready to harvest between April and June each year. With a particularly sweet and succulent flavour, they are very much in demand throughout their short season.

They are always grit free because they never come into contact with the seabed. During September, mussel seed is bought from Ireland where it has been settled onto ropes. These ropes are wound in spirals around the Bouchot poles. The mussels continue to grow over the following 18 months until they are ready for harvest.

Mussels are purified in UV treated sea water, to stringent EU standards, and de-bearded prior to packing so they are ready to cook.
