It was so interesting. The kids loved it and it was extremely informative. Our tour guide was excellent. It was well worth the money, where else would you see this?!!? Absolutely fabulous.

Found the farm by accident, and wound up learning quite a bit. Interesting to get a better perspective about the animals served in every restaurant on the island. Beautiful location, but something you only have to see once.

The world's only conch farm is a very interesting visit! In addition to learning about how conch develop and the work that goes into farming conch, the Conch Farm is also now raising four different kinds of fish for export. The tour is interesting and informative, and fairly brief - we were in and out in 30-45 minutes - and... More

We had the opportunity to visit the Conch Farm as part of a day tour and found it quite interesting. It is the only commercial Conch farm in the world and they show you how they are raised from egg to mature animals (4 yrs.+). While you are in the Turks you have to try cracked Conch or Conch fritters...really... More

I was the only one of our family looking forward to this tour, and we all ended up loving it! Our guide first told us about the farm and the development of the conch. We were then able to tour the facility and see the conch's development from very small to much larger. There were multiple opportunities to pick up... More

Pulling in was thinking this was going to be a bust, but it turned out to be surprisingly informative. The science behind how they have figured out the farming process is amazing. Was really cool to touch the tiny baby conchs.

The women who gave us tour in picture was very good It is a little hard to find but we asked someone when we were close they were happy to tell us. I liked it never realized they took so long to be full grown.

This was the perfect outing to break up our beach days. The farm is located at Heaving Down Rock, near the marina where you can charter boats. It's a right turn off Leeward Highway with a tiny sign that you may miss. We called ahead to make sure they were open because hours are not posted on their web site.... More

My girls loved the conch farm, and it's nice to know that all the conch we have on the island is from those pristine waters.
