Doug and Elsie Mae Carter, Owners of Delaware Chicken Farm & Seafood Market

Doug and Elsie Mae met in eighth grade and became high school sweethearts…a love that has lasted a lifetime. In 1961, the young couple purchased the store from Elsie’s parents.  A year later, Delaware moved to its current location. Their family grew along with the business: Elsie Mae and Doug have three beautiful children, Bonnie, Keith and Kenny, two grandchildren, Sara and Matthew, and two great-grandchildren, Nathan and Sophia.
