As Northampton continues to flail about, fretting over how to implement the proper kind of Comprehensive Plan that will ensure that business interests are squashed, Eyre Baldwin is a one man gang attempting to bring some semblance of an economy and jobs to the lower shore.
This week, the Northampton County Board of Supervisors approved Eyre Baldwin and Ta of Pearl LLC’s permit to open a “food hub,”, which is basically a single location that will sell and prepare local agricultural and aquacultural products.
The hub will be located on the lower shore at the old grader shed on Latimer Siding Road.

If you are a vendor, whether a grower, producer or on-site vendor and wish to be part of the food hub, please contact Taylor Custis at: Pearlmktesva@gmail.com.
