J.M. Clayton Company - Cambridge, Maryland

As proprietors of the oldest working crab house in the world, the Brooks brothers at J.M. Clayton Company are experts in the handling of local Chesapeake Bay blue crabs. Their great-grandfather, Captain Johnnie, started the facility in 1890. These days, fresh crabs continue to arrive on their docks year round, where the bushels are cooked in huge steamers in preparation for the tedious task of hand-picking the fresh crab meat for packaging. Note: Our Farm to Market slide shows currently feature farmers and producers from our South and MidAtlantic Regions. We hope to expand to others in the future.

@DONNIE - At this time we do not ship perishable items from our stores. I would suggest reaching out to the J.M. Clayton Company to see if they offer shipping. http://jmclayton.com/.

Thank you, Alajandra of J.M.Clayton Seafood Co., for the care and expert attention to paid in picking the Maryland Blue Crabs for Epicurius' lump crab meat which I purchased at Whole Foods recently. There was not a single shell in the entire container and that bespeaks your incredible attention and professionalism. I hope this will be noted appropriately. Keep up the outstanding work! Judith
