After more than ten years of oyster farming on the Helford River, the Duchy of Cornwall Oyster Farm Company will close its operations from 2017. The business has operated from Duchy premises since 2005. Talks about the future of the oyster farm began earlier this year with the Duchy wishing to reclaim the site in Port Navas whilst the occupant looked to focus on their wholesale and restaurant business. By mutual agreement, the premises, including the buildings and quay will be returned to Duchy management by April next year. The occupant will sell all existing stock and ensure the site is in a suitable condition for the cultivation of native oysters in the future.
Taking our lead from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, sustainability has long been at the heart of how the Duchy operates.
