Oyster Farm Tours

We are currently trialling Oyster Farm Tours, a unique, educational experience of oyster farming in Whitstable.

The trip will involve an educational tour around the farm, grading and purification facilities with an opportunity to learn about the famous Whitstable Oysters and get your hands dirty!

We will meet at our acclaimed Native Oyster Stores restaurant for a quick coffee before putting on wellies and heading out to the farm. You’ll learn about the process of oyster farming as well as the environmental conditions that give our oysters their distinct taste.

After the farm, we’ll head to the East Quay to visit the grading and purification centre, again getting some hands-on experience with the oysters. The tour will finish with a complimentary oyster tasting session of Whitstable native and Whitstable rock oysters.

For the purpose of fine-tuning the Oyster Farm Tours a reduced fee of £10 per person will be charged. Only 15 places are available so prompt booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
