2024 Farm Day
What's it like to harvest your own shellfish? Come muck around and find out!
Since 2008 we've been welcoming visitors to our farm in the Spring to harvest their own oysters and clams, and learn about intertidal ecology and shellfish farming. These Farm Days are great fun for the whole family!
Tickets include pre-purchase of oysters and clams.
Each $85 ticket includes the ability to harvest 3 dz oysters and some clams (we'll lend you the bucket to dig clams into, it fits ~3 lbs), as well as a 5 gallon bucket to take home with you and some ice. We will be on site to help you harvest, identify clam species, and steer you towards the perfect oyster.
Tickets allow beach entry for 2 adults.
For purposes of beach exploration, we define "adult" as anyone over 16 years old. We're not limiting the number of children you can bring with you - however - make sure it's not more than you can keep tabs on!
Here are a few Farm Day FAQs:

Once you buy tickets, we'll follow up via email with more information about things to bring and other logistics. This means that we'll add you to our marketing email list (if periodic emails from us aren't your thing, it's easy to unsubscribe after the event is over.)
See you on the beach!
Unmarked hazards exist on our beach, both man made and natural, so if you venture out please remember to watch your step. When you arrive at the event, we'll have a check-in station with more information about beach safety, and will require everyone who walks on the beach to sign a safety waiver and hear our safety spiel.
