When local farmer and businessman Paul Parsons was 10 years old, he did what many young boys of his generation did - he started his own produce stand.

Armed with nothing more than a wagon and a single card table, he would sit outside every day during the summer and sell his family's produce. It was his indoctrination, if you will, into the world of farming - at least the commercial side of it.

Today, Paul and his family oversee nearly 250 acres of prime Sussex County farmland, not far removed from the entirely different tourism havens of the Delaware beaches.

The Parsons understand, as have generations before them, that southern Delaware is dominated by three industries - tourism, poultry and agriculture.

The family has become one of the major

The Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty will host two open house events this weekend, in various locations throughout southern Delaware. Both will be hosted by our very own Pamela Foster.

If you're looking for a home near the beaches, this is a great chance for you to get outside and take a look at these featured homes. Both are close enough to the beach to enjoy the coastal lifestyle, but far enough enough away to allow for a bit lower selling price.

Here's where we'll be this weekend...

Located at 10293 Fox Glen Drive in Bridgeville, the first home open for viewing this weekend is a three bedroom, two bathroom property nestled on more than three-quarters of an acre in western Sussex County.

Southern Delaware natives and long-time residents have no doubt heard stories like the Oldfather Group's Sue Huntington’s before, tales of people who grew up visiting the Delaware beaches in their youth, before moving to the area permanently in later years.

But Sue’s story is a bit different – she may live in historic Milton now, but there are things she observes and people she encounters every day that remind her of a certain small town in central Pennsylvania where she lived as a young girl.

And after wrapping up a career working for the United States government, that’s exactly what she was looking for.

“I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania called Nescopeck, which is south of Scranton, and Milton reminds me of my home town every day,”

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the “Weekender Blog,” as always brought to you by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty.

We hope everyone got out last weekend and enjoyed the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and Bridgeville’s Apple Scrapple Festival, two of the greatest annual events our area has to offer.

We actually find ourselves in a bit of a lull this third full weekend in October, sandwiched between all of the excitement of last week and another busy weekend on deck, when the Sea Witch Halloween and Fiddler’s Festival takes center stage in coastal Delaware.

But there are still some great happenings scheduled for the next few days, most notably the Boo-B-Que By

Two gems of southern Delaware’s fall festival season take center stage this weekend as both the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and Bridgeville’s Apple Scrapple Festival return for their 2017 runs.

Each festival draws thousands of visitors from throughout Delaware, as well as surrounding states, and contribute significantly to the local economy during the so-called “extended season” between Labor Day and mid-November.

There are other events on the schedule as well, most notably the CAMP Rehoboth Block Party on Baltimore Avenue, but these two are certainly the belles of the ball for the next few days here in coastal Delaware.

Southern Delaware’s fall festivals keep visitors coming to our area long after the traditional Memorial Day to Labor Day
