Join DCLT on our first Home Grown Tour,  a unique exploration of Dennis’ local farms, offering a chance to connect with the passionate farmers behind the scenes. Experience the vibrant stories and sustainable practices that shape the Cape’s agricultural landscape.

Participating Farm: A.R.C Hatchery

Join us as we tour the A.R.C. Hatchery. The Aquacultural Research Corporation (A.R.C.) is the only large-scale commercial shellfish hatchery in Massachusetts, supplying hundreds of millions of oyster and clam “seed” annually to independent growers around Cape Cod and down the East Coast. Established in 1960, A.R.C. was founded to develop the art of shellfish spawning and to support local growers and companies reliant on fresh oysters and clams. Located behind Chapin Beach in Dennis for over 60 years, the company now employs 30 people in a wide variety of positions.
