At Farmers & Fishermen, Ben Halpern’s day starts early in the waking hours of the morning, often around 3 a.m. or 4 a.m., depending on the needs of the business. He said he enjoys wearing many ‘hats’ encompassing everything from sales to marketing to operations.

“Our dedicated team works hard to chase perfection in supplying our valued food service and home delivery customers with the highest quality meat, seafood, and specialty products available,” he said. “Involved in the community, I value playing a role in helping to distribute food to those in need. I’m also honored to serve on the Board of Trustees at Temple Emanu-El and help foster a community of inclusion by working with people with special needs. In my free time, I enjoy cooking for my family and rollerblading around this city I grew up in that I’m proud to forever call, ‘Home.’”

“I’m most proud in our ability to align our great privilege of servicing the community with wholesome meat and seafood with the positive impact we’re making on the lives of small farmers, small fishermen, our employee partners, and their families,” Halpern said.

“I’m incredibly humbled to be recognized as one of this year’s Jewish Atlanta 40 Under 40 honorees. Growing up in the Atlanta Jewish scene, I’ve always had a tremendous amount of respect for those within the community who have a commitment to leadership and giving back. It’s an honor to share this recognition with such an unbelievable group of young Jewish professionals. I look forward to learning from and celebrating their many successes in addition to others’. I am truly grateful to The Atlanta Jewish Times for selecting me among such an outstanding group.”

Halpern has earned bachelor’s degrees in business management and marketing from the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University. Halpern is engaged to fiancé, Carlin Barnes.
