Hollander and de Köning is a family owned Maine company. The owner, Theo de Koning, is a fifth generation Dutch mussel farmer and has been farming for more than twenty years.
Theo moved to Bar Harbor, ME with his wife Fiona and three children to start a new project that would introduce this method of farming to Maine. In a state that has always relied heavily on its natural resources, Theo saw an opportunity to produce this premium mussel sustainably, while slotting in alongside a traditional way of life.
This way of farming mussels brings job opportunities to the working waterfront of Maine and gives Theo and Fiona the chance to raise his family in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
