North Carolina caviar is farmed at Marshallberg Farm, the largest producer of Russian sturgeon in the United States. U.S. farmed caviar is a great alternative to imported farmed caviar for many reasons. Imports are known to contain borax, a potentially harmful preservative. Foreign facilities are also known to use hormone injections and antibiotics, both illegal to use in the USA. Also, depending on the country, environmental standards for aquaculture may be little or none. The U.S. has strict environmental standards that are carefully monitored and enforced for every farm. This prevents water contamination, health hazards and product mislabelling. Buying domestic caviar, like buying domestic products in general, is good for the economy. When given the choice of a domestic product or a less expensive import, remember – there are good reasons why imported products cost less. Poor wages, pollution and unverified ingredients are a few points to consider. Support U.S. agriculture by buying domestic. And on a more selfish note, North Carolina caviar is of much higher quality and purity than imports, even though you’re paying almost the same.
The golden was the best caviar we have had!!! Agreed by all, truly the golden was amazing!!! We have been eating Marshallberg’s for years. We have compared it to the best we have had. Hands down Marshallberg’s the best!!! We have shared it with Michelin chef friends and industry experts, The vote is always the same, the best. I have Persian friends that bring us caviar from Iran. This goes toe to toe.

I have tried many different sources for caviar and Marshallberg Farm is simply the best. The flavor was what I was looking for and the texture was magnificent. The product came arrived at the perfect temperature because the packaging was the best I have ever seen. A terrific experience from start to finish.

Excellent caviar! I used to have Russian Beluga caviar delivered by the kilo when I lived in Europe… This is just as good & no strange additives like borax and it’s made in the USA!! Excellent !!

If you ever wondered what the fuss about (good) caviar is all about , then order some from Marshallberg Farm and you will find out . I acquired a taste for it back in the 60’s & 70’s , when Russian Beluga was still available , but have not been able to recreate the experience until now . I ordered my first tin from them about a year ago , curious to know if the product measured up to my expectations which it did beyond my wildest hopes . I admit to being a ‘ Caviar Snob ‘ and shamelessly want nothing but the best when I indulge in it . Marshallberg Farm delivers the goods every time . You can pay a lot more from other vendors with fancy names and New York addresses but the taste and quality will not match the freshness and integrity of this . Take it from a food snob , this caviar rocks , you won’t be disappointed .

Excellent caviar. We used to order from Petrossian but this caviar arrives in perfect condition, is every bit as good, less expensive and originates from a small American business. Highly recommended for all these reasons!

Because Marshallberg Farm’s osetra caviar is superior to all of the caviars available today, I order it once a month. I have served and eaten the Royal in traditional formats, such as with chopped egg, minced shallot, creme fraiche, and blinis, as canapes, as a delightful caviar and egg sandwich, as a garnish for pasta carbonara or simply with scrambled eggs. but my favorite way to eat it is by itself along with a glass of Champagne.

Tasted the caviar at a virtual champagne and caviar tasting. It was amazing. I have ordered the product two additional times for special occasions. It is truly a great tasting product. I have introduced to several friends who have become members.
Perfection — just the right saltiness, divine glorious texture, and it tastes marvelous!

We ordered the Classic Osetra Caviar – 4 oz for my parent’s 65th Anniversary party since my mother and father LOVE caviar and it was a HUGE hit!
First of all, the customer service could not have been better. I was a bit “green” when it comes to caviar and I was also really nervous about ordering, but Lianne was patient, extremely knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions to put me at ease. I cannot even describe how amazing and “buttery” this caviar was. Every bite was so pleasurable to the palate and there was plenty to go around for 10 people. We made a complete caviar set up tray with the eggs, onions, capers, lemons and creme fraiche and plopped the tray right down in front of my Mom and Dad — they were in heaven!!
We will absolutely order caviar again from Marshallberg Farm for our next occasion. Maybe my 60th birthday…? 🙂

I am admittedly a caviar fanatic! I read about Marshallberg Farms and immediately had to try it. The Classic Osetra is exceptional! It rivals even the best that is available here East Coast. The first time I ordered it, I opened a 1.75 tin ( just to taste) and ended up polishing off all by myself standing in the kitchen. ( I did slice a lemon and toasted 2 pieces of thin sliced bread) I’m going to now admit I didn’t tell anyone about the other tin. It is that good!!! I have also tried the smoked sturgeon. I made a spicy fish dip with it and also served it on crackers with a sour cream horseradish sauce. One of the owners Lianne , is very helpful and adds a personal touch every time. The packaging is all environmentally friendly and arrives ice cold. Perfect gift ( even if it’s for yourself.
