Kraken Cakes was started in 2015. It began as a way to spend some time with my mom, and then I realized that I love baking, decorating, and being able to feed people delicious noms.
I chose the name Kraken Cakes because I love the ocean, and mythological lore.

Paella Perfecta opening was a family dream come true. Margo lived in Spain and tasted and prepared the unique and locally sourced cuisine that has been eaten for generations. Now Harrisonburg and the Shenandoah Valley will be able to enjoy the traditional flavors of paella and Spain.

Vine and Grape Kitchen / Hops Kitchen’s cuisine can be described as the culmination of the tastes, smells, and sights that I experienced traveling and living in Southeast Asia, Central America, Southern Florida, New Mexico, Colorado, Ohio, and now Virginia. My years spent as head chef for several large resorts including, Taos Ski Valley(Taos, New Mexico) and The Boardwalk (Put In Bay, Ohio), have sharpened my tools as not only a chef, but a creator. My plan as the owner and operator of Hops Kitchen is to bring my experiences and tools to the plate in order to serve you. Through my travels, I have learned that it is best to utilize the resources closest to me in order to obtain sustainability. That is why everyday I am networking with local businesses such as Basic City Beer Co., Sunrise Farms, and Purple Cow.

We offer the the best tasting oysters in the Chesapeake Bay
Our Big Island Oysters are grown on a beautiful, pristine body of water nestled between the York River, the Mobjack Bay and Myrtle Point Narrows.
Big Island is where a community of watermen lived and worked the waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
Professional oyster tasters refer to these oysters as the “quintessential oyster”; the perfect blend of salty, sweet and buttery. Perfect for any occasion.
Our oysters are grown sustainably in the beautiful waters surrounding Big Island, Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay.
Big Island Aquaculture is a small, family run business serving our customers with great tasting oysters, while helping sustain the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and promoting it’s rich culture.
Our Big Island Oysters are grown on a beautiful pristine body of water nestled between the York River, the Mobjack Bay and Myrtle Point Narrows.
To this day watermen continue to fish the bountiful waters of the Mobjack around Big Island.
History tells us this special place produced oysters the watermen prized for their own private stock. They referred to these briny oysters as the best tasting in the entire bay.
Legend has it Pocahontas, Chief Powhatan, and Captain John Smith enjoyed the oysters growing along these shores, followed in later years by General George Washington, Lafayette, and other leaders of the American Revolution as they laid siege to the British across the river in Yorktown.
Today, professional oyster tasters call the Big Island Oysters the “quintessential oyster”; the perfect blend of salty, sweet and buttery. Perfect for any occasion.
So as you enjoy these quintessential oysters from Big Island Aquaculture, reflect upon the history of these waters and those who have enjoyed them before you.
