    MCKRE Visits Early Girl in Beaufort!

    Written by Landie Canfield, Client Care Coordinator & Copywriter

    Landie hanging out with friend and owner of Early Girl, Christy!


    Christy Reisz took the idea of backyard farming, combined it with her love of cooking fresh, flowers and hard work, and gave us Early Girl. She brings beauty and joy to Beaufort and beyond with her stunning stems and tasty treats that she plants and nurtures from dirt to plate.

    Christy’s philosophy as a farmer is as pure and as good as her joyous spirit and rowdy laugh. Everything at Early Girl Farm is organically grown and treated with care and respect for the earth. It starts with the soil, “the most important part” of the garden. Adding to her policy of no pesticides and no waste, Christy plays music to her plants to get them in the growth groove.

    Wandering the mixed rows of blooms and greens is a delight to the senses: from lush lettuces and jewel-toned carrots to aromatic herbs and mircrogreens that beg to be touch ...

    An MCKRE Downtown Favorite: Full Circle Cafe

    Written by Landie Canfield, Client Care Coordinator & Copywriter


    Chefs are celebrities in their own right. They influence cooking trends, enthrall diners with unexpected tastes and enhance the emotional connection we have to food. Often a chef can make such an impact that he, or she, is synonymous with a city or place and can even become a household name.  On the Crystal Coast, we are lucky enough to have our own, Full Circle’s Kyle Swain. He has been a fixture on the culinary scene for decades, consistently wooing and wowing locals and visitors alike as chef and owner of the beloved Wind & Sea, Blue Moon, and now Full Circle, Chef Kyle’s current full-time endeavor and an MCKRE favorite.





    It is a confluence of many things that come together to make the magic happen in the Full Circle kitchen. It’s not simply cooking food, rather it’s a process that starts in the much-loved community outside the doors and carries through to the tight- ...
