Here’s Belgium’s one and only oyster farm.

De Oesterput produce a unique fleshy oyster that reflects the farming technique.

Each oyster is the product of a variety of farming techniques, which are all priced in a  shallow brackish water.

The owners are passionate about their produce, and told me that they’d been in business for 21 years.

The whole enterprise was set up as a scheme to protect themselves from a compulsory purchase order, as this type of industry offered them favoured status and a chance to keep hold their property.
