Emerald Isle Realty

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

Our local provisions are being prepared by Carteret Local Food Network in Carteret County, who will aggregate produce from several member farms. Thank you for your support of small farms and local foods, we look forward to sharing local produce with you this summer.

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 meat bundles from Shenk Family Farm. The meat bundle consists of approximately 18 servings of pasture-raised products, including 1 lb ground beef, 1 lb breakfast sausage, 4 link sausages, and 2-4 lbs of chicken.

This project aims to support the livelihoods of small farmers 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.

Provisions will be delivered to your vacation rental on Saturdays between 4 pm and 7 pm.  Someone must be available at the rental home during that time window to receive the delivery.
