Barnstable harbor is an inter-tidal estuary on the north side of Cape Cod. The body of water is bordered by a barrier beach to the north called Sandy Neck and the town of Barnstable proper to the south. Cape Cod Oyster Company has a total of 19 acres of oyster leases in this body or water. Due to the large tides of Cape Cod Bay, we employ a rack and bag system. Each day our oysters are fully exposed during low tide resulting in less fouling from marine life.
