Island Creek Oyster Farm Tour

Winning Bid: $220.00

Item condition: New



Includes: 2 number of passes for Oyster Farm Tour
Value: $300
Starting Bid: $100

Donated by: Island Creek Oyster

Description: Spend a day on the historic 11-acre Island Creek Oyster Farm getting a taste of Island Creek living while experiencing the process of farming oysters directly at the source. Walk the halls of the new hatchery and see firsthand how the process of growing oysters begins. You’ll then climb aboard a 27-foot Carolina Skiff and ride out on Duxbury Bay to see where the magic happens. Take in an eye and earful of history, lore, and oyster gossip—all the while breathing in ocean air and filling up on freshly shucked oysters directly from the waters beneath you. This is farm to table at its essence! And if you’re feeling confident, the tour guide will even teach you how to shuck an oyster like a pro. Once your tour is over, you can make your way to the bayfront raw bar, sit by the bonfire, enjoy the view, and stay awhile. The hope is you’ll leave Duxbury with a comprehensive understanding of aquaculture and have a good time doing it. *Must be scheduled by May 1, 2021, on a mutually agreeable date for the 2021 season.
