2024 Oyster Classes

Regular price $ 145.00

Come to the farm for a unique and fun oyster experience. These classes include a shucking lesson followed by lots of practice as you work your way through a comparative oyster tasting of bivalves near and far. Along the way, we'll explore how oyster culture varies from region to region, delve into wine pairings, experiment with condiments and preparation techniques, and tell a few jokes. You'll leave with the know-how to be a confident oyster consumer, however you choose to eat them... at home, in restaurants, or fresh off the beach.

Class starts at 12 and ends between 2 and 3 pm. It includes ~2 dozen oysters (depending on how many you're hungry for!) of at least 4-6 different types (including some of our roasted oysters) plus snacks, handouts to take home, wine and beer pairings, and a brief walking tour of our oyster farm.

NOTE: 4/13/24 class includes a beach tour. Wear waterproof shoes and prepare to explore the intertidal.

Wonderful Experience and Class!

I took the class last weekend. It was awesome! Learned the quick and easy way to shuck and ate a massive number of excellent oysters. We learned about farming techniques, how oysters grow in the wild, preparation techniques. We tasted many varieties, mostly local but compared to some east coast varieties too. Learned the history of this family-run business and got a farm tour. Well worth the time and money. I highly recommend the class!

Fantastic Class

As a professional wine educator, I do class presentations quite often. Being entertaining, energetic and highly
Informative is difficult to achieve. The 1/27/24 class at Hama Hama was outstanding! I learned so much and also had a great time! If all my education had been as much fun and that delicious, I’d still be in school.

Oyster Class

I just recently participated in one of the oyster classes and I highly recommend it. The person who gave the class was great, the experience was so enjoyable, and I came away with lots of new knowledge about oysters. We got to taste multiple types and they were incredible fresh and delicious. I highly recommend taking this class. There was a nice spread of light food to snack on, shucking gloves and oyster knife, a great little notebook to record the oyster tasting in. And, of course, the oysters, raw and cooked.

The classes are so very fun for us to teach. We're glad you had a good time, and we thank you for this feedback, and for coming!
