Ever wonder how those crabs and oysters go from being harvested out of the Bay to  reaching your table?  Since its outset, Crisfield has been at the forefront of the Chesapeake Bay seafood industry and CHF will take into this fascinating aquatic world.  This is quite an experience, one that is only brought to by the CHF.

CHF’s staff and volunteers are here to bring our world to you!
