Blue Heron Realty

Thank you for visiting us to pre-buy provisions for your summer vacation. Vacationer Supported Agriculture products are supplied by local farmers and shrimpers in partnership with NC State University and local community organizations.

Our “Local produce bags” are being prepared by farmer Thomas Midgette who also sources produce from neighbors near Swanquarter, NC. The bags are filled and made available for pickup on Sunday at a convenient location near your vacation rental.  Each bag will contain a little more than 10 pounds of fresh produce, fruit and herbs.  This typically amounts to 12 servings of fruit and vegetables for the week.  We will reach out to you a few days before your vacation to share what’s in season in participating farms so you know which items you can expect in your bag.

This year we were also able to secure access to a limited number of local “Happy hen eggs” by the dozen, as well as local wild caught jumbo shrimp.

This project aims to support the livelihoods of small farmers and shrimpers and fulfill vacationers’ desire for fresh local foods. Every aspect of the P1provisions experience is designed to facilitate a mutually-beneficial partnership between discerning vacationers and local foods producers.  Please look at our terms and policies for details.
