Event description

Description

Join us for a tour of the Hummock Island Oyster Farm in Westport, Connecticut. Learn how oysters are grown as we travel by boat across Sherwood Mill Pond to our private island. Once on the island we'll tell you a bit about the history of oystering in Connecticut and how our company came to be. We'll end the tour with an oyster tasting and shucking lesson on the front porch of the island house overlooking the water. The experience is family friendly and exciting for adults and children of all ages. Children under 12 years old are free with an adult.
