The Story of Emily's Produce
A 7th Generation Farm Family
Provide our community with a local farm experience that demonstrates honest hardworking family values combined with exceptional products and superior customer service.
Paul and Kelly Jackson welcomed their daughter Emily into the world. They wanted her to grow up knowing and loving the family trade so they decided to open a family-owned roadside market. They named it in Emily’s honor, and then set out to run it in a way that would teach their daughter about their work ethic and traditions.
Emily’s Produce offers customers the best and freshest homegrown fruits and vegetables on the Shore. We have fresh local meats including our own Angus Beef that are raised in a pasture with fresh green grass to graze and without the use of hormones or antibiotics. Our fresh-cut flowers and hanging baskets are second to none. We’re even more than a farm market now—Emily’s is an authentic Eastern Shore experience.
A Full Timeline of Emily's Produce
How We Farm
Emily’s Produce is not a USDA “certified” organic farm, rather it is a farm that practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This reliable method of farming is a way to control insect pests and diseases while protecting human health and the environment. Not all insects, weeds, and other living organisms require control – including organic pesticide control. Our method prefers to first access the situation and limit any chemical control (organic & conventional). Many organisms are not harmful, and some even beneficial.
Emily’s Produce does not plant any G.M.O. fruits or vegetables on the farm. The use of safe and sustainable farming practices that preserve the environment, reduce waste, and promote healthy growing systems are a priority. Our focus is on producing the best quality products that are picked at their peak ripeness and maintaining the product’s freshness, and nutritional values.
Community Connections & Collaborations
Emily’s Produce proudly partners with local businesses, chefs, schools, and other members of the community who have an interest in supporting local agriculture and sustaining a healthy lifestyle. Since starting the business in 1999, a focus on delivering the freshest local food to consumers has been the priority. If Emily’s Produce does not plant, pick, or pack the local product, you can feel completely confident that we have a relationship with the farmer who did!
Through 7 generations of agriculture heritage, we can assure you that quality relationships and products are at the forefront of our minds! We support LOCAL agriculture and each and every one of our colleagues who do the same!
