Come see how the historical oyster town of Wellfleet grows oysters. Watch the tide go out and an oyster farm reveal its bounty. We will gauge, cull and shuck our oysters and cover the everyday concerns of aquaculture and oysters. Be it rack and bag, trays, or bottom cropping, we will explore common oyster growing techniques in town and the constant pursuit of growing a 'true oyster'. We will discuss the oyster industry on many levels from fishing regulations to wine pairings. Let’s get to the bottom of where these animals live and what makes a Wellfleet oyster the best tasting in the world. Please be sure to bring Wellies, rubber boots, or anything above the calf and water proof. Garden gloves are recommended.
