Jack Brenner had come from the woods of Wisconsin to seek his fortune in the developing region of the Pacific Northwest.

After purchasing some prime water-front property to develop into an oyster farm, he traded an old horse to the Indians for some floats of oysters to seed the beds. Having no horse, Jack walked 12 miles each day to and from the oyster beds. He rose at 4:00 a.m. and returned home after dark.

His dedication and hard work eventually paid off. By building a reputation for consistent quality, Jack Brenner became known as the father of the oyster industry in the Puget Sound.
