Shelton, Washington

A Chinook word meaning “Good Spirit,” Ekone evokes the ethos of Taylor Shellfish Farms. Fifth generation oyster farmers from Willapa Bay in the southwest corner of Washington, the Taylor family harvest impeccable oysters – shucked and in shell, and to our delight, tinned smoked oysters and mussels. Here, where the cold waters of the Pacific meet the waterways flowing from Willapa Hills, is the cleanest, most productive coastal ecosystem in the continental United States; producing, in our opinion, the best tinned oysters around.
