Farm, Food & Beverage Tours in Cape Cod
By: Marguerite Wiser
With phenomenal fresh seafood, delicious local produce, fantastic restaurants, and a thriving craft beverage scene, explore your way through Cape Cod and the Islands with a healthy appetite! Get immersed in the local farm, food and beverage scene on Cape Cod and the Islands through an exciting tour.
The rich marine environment around Cape Cod and the Islands provides excellent wild caught seafood and numerous thriving shellfish farms producing oysters, bay scallops, quahogs, soft-shell clams, and more! Lots of area oyster farms offer tours, taking visitors through the process of growing oysters, from seed to table! Get out on the water and learn firsthand how these remarkable bivalves are grown, and how they help to keep the water clean. Many tours end with a tasting!
If fish is what you’re after, you can charter your own excursion to catch your own, visit one of the seafood markets in the area, or dine at any number of great seafood restaurants!
Get into the local food scene and learn how Cape Cod’s iconic cranberries are grown with a tour of a cranberry bog, or a visit a local farmers market.
There’s no shortage of great restaurants on Cape Cod and the Islands, but there are only so many meals in a day. Taking a local food tour allows you to sample dishes from a variety of restaurants, while enjoying a pleasant and informative stroll through historic villages. The Hungry in Hyannis tour from Cape Cod Foodie Tours will take you off the beaten track for a memorable lunch sampling from seven different local establishments. From classic clam chowder to Brazilian cuisine, woodfired pizza, Mexican cuisine and more, variety isn’t lacking!
If it’s the burgeoning craft beverage scene you’d like to explore, there are tours for youtoo! Cape Cod has multiple small bus tours that provide your group transportation from brewery to brewery. If you’d rather experience Cape Cod breweries, wineries, and distilleries over a longer period of time with your own transportation, consider following Cape Cod’s Craft Beverage Tour. The tour will take you the length of the Cape from Falmouth to Provincetown and is a fun way to visit new areas! Many breweries and vineyards also offer their own tours and tastings.
For those who’d like to mix their alcohol with exercise, consider a hike with Nantucket Walkabout, ending with a drink at the brewery, or a “SUP & SIP” tour combining stand-up paddle boarding and wine tasting! (Don’t worry- the wine tasting takes place on dry land!)
There are also plenty of cocktail cruises where visitors can enjoy a local drink while watching the sun set over the water.
