the Brackley Bay oyster company
From the time he was a little boy, Robbie Moore could be found near the water.
When he was ten years old, he started picking quahogs for summer spending money. At 16, he bought his first lease. Over the years, his love of working in the aquaculture sector hasn’t waned.
Though Robbie originally migrated to the Brackley area to fish lobster, he now owns a 28-acre oyster farm at Brackley Bay, a unique site with a very rich history. The farm has existed for more than 100 years. Originally it was owned and operated by Lorne and Edith MacMillan. They farmed the area from the 1920s to 1980s. Robbie came across the oyster lease one day when he was out fishing, he tracked down the previous owners and negotiated a deal and has been farming it ever since.
“It’s clear to me that Lorne way ahead of his time in this industry”
Because Lorne and Edith closed their business in the 1980s and had no children to carry on their legacy, Robbie is so proud to be able to pay hommage and take Brackley Bay oysters around the world again.
