Patrick Hudson

Location: Food for Thought Stage

Patrick Hudson Patrick Hudson didn’t set out to be an oyster farmer, but we’re all glad he is one! Born and raised in Baltimore, Patrick attended Gilman School and graduated from the University of Virginia with plans to go to law school. When not studying he spent his free time “oyster gardening.” Growing oysters in the pristine waters of St. Jerome’s creek soon turned into a full time job. His farm, True Chesapeake Oyster Co., debuted the Skinny Dipper at the Preakness in 2013 and the rest is history. Today, True Chesapeake sells over 1 million oysters a year including those delivered fresh to the Local Oyster, awarded Baltimore’s Best Seafood by Baltimore Magazine. Many consider his Skinny Dippers to be the finest oysters in Maryland
