OUR FAMILY BUSINESS
History – Three generations of the Hemming family have been growing and processing oysters in the pristine waters of NSW. Keith Hemming started farming Sydney Rock Oysters on the Hawkesbury River from 1951. Andrew also farmed Sydney Rock Oysters on the Hawkesbury River from 1974 and in 1991 expanded the growing business with the purchase of Casanova Oysters, which was then located on the Eastern side of the Entrance Boat-shed. At the time the business had a small shopfront with tables on the Eastern deck of the boat-shed. With a rapidly growing Wholesale clientele the business outgrew the premises and moved to in Long Jetty in 2000. In 2013 we moved to our current location in Berkley Vale to further expand our premise with our continued wholesale and retail growth.Our philosophy remains unchanged with our guarantee of the freshest oysters and seafood.
We currently supply many of the restaurants, seafood shops and fisherman’s co-ops on the Central Coast, Newcastle and Sydney with the freshest of oysters that we source direct from the farmers on the Eastern seaboard of Australia.
As with all fresh produce, Oysters are seasonal in different river systems and we have developed generational bonds with our suppliers to ensure our quality standards are met.
