Established in 1980, and family owned and operated; Porthilly oyster farm covers four sites on both sides of inter-tidal waters at the River Camel Estuary, near the coastal settlement of Porthilly, Rock, Cornwall, England.


Porthilly Oyster farm is the only oyster farm in north Cornwall.


The River Camel Estuary is a 'Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. As a protected landscape, the River Camel Estuary has the same status and protection as a National Park. The River Camel Estuary includes four Sites of Special Scientific Interest. The River Camel is a Designated Special Area of Conservation.


As one of the few safe havens on the north coast of Cornwall, the River Camel Estuary has been used since Roman times. The River Camel and its tributaries are crossed by more listed bridges than any other river in Cornwall. Of these, Wadebridge is the oldest and was built in the 15th century. The name 'Camel' is derived from the Middle Cornish name 'Cal-Em' and means 'Crooked One', which reflects the various twists and turns of the River Camel.
