Abalone Farm
Abalone Farm

That’s right, we have an abalone growing farm – or more precisely, abalone aquaculture right here on the central coast. The Abalone Farm is one of the few in the country to painstakingly recreate a natural growth environment where the red abalone they grow flourish. The abalone is available wholesale only. I buy mine at the pier in Avila Beach or you might call your local fishmonger and ask that they order the delicacy for you. The abalone is a mollusk. A favorite way to serve it is layered with pork belly and avocado – super delicious!

During certain times of the year the farm offers tours. For more information visit www.abalonefarm.com
