Adkins Produce is located, 32008 Long Neck Rd., Long Neck, DE 302-945-9700. Just off of route 24, headed towards Massey’s Landing. When I asked David Godwin how long they have been in business, he answered since 1975, before I was born. That must be tough running a store before you were born. Adkins Produce is a family owned and operated business. All produce is locally grown, except the candy counter. They make their own sausage, scrapple, and farm fresh eggs are always available. Fresh “canned” bread and butter pickles, garlic cloves, and honey. Everything in the store coincides with the seasons, from the vegetables to the holidays. Mums galore is the word, gourds, pumpkins and the like for fall decorations. They will have fresh turkeys for Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Fruit baskets and Christmas trees will be available after turkey day. The store is seasonal and closes on December 23rd, reopening about mid April. The store hours for the fall are M-F 11 – 6, Sat. 9 – 6, and closed on Sunday. Summer hours are 7 days a week 9 – 7 M – Sat. and 9 – 5 on Sunday.
