Peter Bierce

Years of Participation

Peter is co-owner of Charleston Oyster Farm along with being an avid oyster wrangler. Peter's first time to Charleston was through the jetties, visiting port during a high school semester at sea. It was this nautical venture that led Peter to the Holy City. Prior to his oyster entrepreneurship, Peter worked for the SCORE program at SC Department of Natural Resources, helping rejuvenate wild oyster populations across South Carolina. After several years he realized the need for farmed oysters in Charleston, and decided to leave SCDNR and join his brother and wife in the quest for starting the first oyster farm in Charleston, SC providing sustainable, salty singles to the Lowcountry.
