In 1985, a young woman named Pamela Barefoot had a dream — to move to Virginia’s isolated Eastern Shore and survive with her creativity. The rural coastal peninsula, bounded by the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, offered a blank canvas for entrepreneurial opportunity, inspiring Pam to start her own business now known as Blue Crab Bay Co., a Bay Beyond Inc. brand and a Virginia certified women’s small business.

Our New England Clam Chowder is fine for a quick meal. However, sometimes we "dress it up" for special guests. Here's an easy method.
Boil the potato until tender, then dice. Sauté finely chopped celery and most of the bacon, and set aside. In a stockpot, combine the New England Clam Chowder and half-and-half. Heat slowly, stirring frequently. When very hot, add the diced potato and celery, and stir until warm. Ladle into serving bowls, then garnish with crumbled bacon and parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves 4.
One large white potato
One stalk celery
Two strips cooked bacon, chopped
1 15-oz. can of New England Clam Chowder
15 oz. half-and-half
