Church Hill couple working to resurrect Anderson’s Neck oyster grounds

Church Hill neighbors Laura and Michael Hild have been working to conserve an undeveloped colonial plantation on the York River and are attempting to bring the once famous Anderson’s Neck oyster grounds back to life:

Hild’s nascent oyster farm has 300,000 of the mollusks. He says each oyster filters as much as 50 gallons of water a day when fully grown. And, after tangling with no fewer than nine regulatory bodies over two years, he’s about a month away from selling his first oysters to Richmond restaurants.

Online orders start at $85 for 36 oysters, Hild said, and FedEx will ship the oysters overnight. An order of 100 will run $150. For restaurants in the area, Hild said the company would have a refrigerated truck for direct deliveries.

That’s awesome. The guy in York who had been in a legal dispute with the county over his home-based oyster farm also just won, so cool to see two oyster operations moving along.
