Kilmarnock epitomizes small town America with quaint shops nestled along brick-edged sidewalks and evenings lit by turn-of-the-century styled street lamps. Flags mounted to storefronts wave in a breeze that carries the flavors of local restaurants—steamed shellfish, grilled steaks, or barbecue—and mixes with the salty air of surrounding creeks and the Chesapeake Bay.

Reed brought with him a little nugget of knowledge that was passed down to the pilgrims of Plymouth Rock by Native Americans: These small fish were a valuable fertilizer.
