The not-so-true story of Carolina Crab company...

With New England Blood pumping through her veins and Irish sweat dripping down her face, Diane Reilley spent the 80’s and 90’s slaving away in the kitchen just to keep her litter of 7 from starving. She passed her culinary skills down to each child including her world famous meatloaf, Christmas morning eggs, and her melt-all-over-your-face mac ‘n cheese. There were only two things this woman wouldn’t dare to cook with... tomatoes and crabs. Feeling empty and incomplete, her sons went on a quest to find someone who would provide tomatoes or crabs at the high standard at which every other dish had been prepared for them. In 2010, the boys began training under a legendary Indian and tomato farmer, along with a crab minded protégé with a knack for packing bellies and smacking outlaws. In 2014 the Carolina Crab Company was born. Unfortunately they had no success with the tomatoes.
