In Havre Boucher, where the rhythm of the tides guides the lives of its residents, Cabot Oysters has become more than a business; it’s a living example of dedication, sustainability, and the enduring spirit of a fishing community. Nestled within this coastal haven, Cabot Oysters takes pride in cultivating a pristine and sustainable product while championing a carbon-positive approach.
The journey begins with the nurturing of spat, oyster babies, as they grow to full maturity and market size. It’s a meticulous process that reflects Cabot Oysters’ commitment to delivering the highest quality seafood. The pristine nature of their product is not just a goal; it’s a guiding principle that underscores every stage of their operation.
Cabot Oysters extend beyond the shimmering waters and into the fabric of the community. Local support is not just a checkbox; it’s a cornerstone of their philosophy. The company actively engages with the local community, supporting and hiring locally whenever possible. The result is a thriving business deeply intertwined with the lives of those who call Havre Boucher home.
For the owners, being a part of this fishing community is more than a business decision—it’s a way of life. Starting a business from scratch is no easy feat, but the warm embrace of Havre Boucher has been a source of strength and encouragement. The challenges and learning curves that come with building something from the ground up are met with the resilient spirit of a community that understands the ebb and flow of both tides and entrepreneurship.
Expressing gratitude is second nature to Cabot Oysters, and they extend their thanks to the community, their family, and their friends. However, there’s a special acknowledgment reserved for the late Hughie Mattie, the father whose dream laid the foundation for Cabot Oysters. Although he passed before witnessing the fruition of the oysters, his legacy lives on in the proud and happy faces of those who have taken his dream to new heights.
