The Parkers have been farming for more than 100 years in the tri-state area. Run by Rod Parker, their facility inspects, packs, and ships produce for growers from Delaware to the Carolinas covering 3,000 acres of land as well as their own produce. Their sustainability methods include reducing both air pollution as well as surface water and ground water usage. They use state-of-the-art hydro-coolers, forced air coolers and other refrigeration to rapidly eliminate field heat. They are also a member of the Northern Neck Vegetable Association, helping to provide scholarships for agricultural students. EA Parker Farms grows a variety of great-tasting and fresh produce, including tomatoes, corn, watermelon, collard greens, kale, peppers, and summer squash.
