It was over 40 years ago when Col. Tom Givan and Dr. Sam Woods realized the need for good, old-fashioned cured country hams in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The two were reminiscing about coming home, getting into Mama Vic’s cabinet, and eating cold biscuits stuffed with Old Doc’s country ham. Col. Givan and Dr. Woods longed for someone in Murfreesboro to cure hams the way they did in the old days.

White Stone Oyster Company was born out of an obsession with the relationship between oysters and their environment. In order to grow a more perfect Chesapeake oyster we introduced a new method of aquaculture to Virginia. We are the first farm whose oysters spend the entirety of their lives floating in the unforgiving surf of the Chesapeake Bay. We will never settle for anything less than the best oysters our home waters can produce.
At Wedge Oak Farm, we work in conjunction with the natural environment and the human-made aspects of our 100 year-old family farm, to create a dynamic and healthy place for animals and vegetables to flourish.
I strive to teach you as much as I can about your fish, how it was caught and who caught it. I pursued a masterâ€™s degree in aquaculture from Kentucky State University so I am big into making sure your fish are caught in an environmentally friendly manner and refer often to Monterrey Bay Aquariumâ€™s Seafood Watch Program for sustainability ratings of your fish.
