The Produce Box story began in 2007, when Courtney Tellefsen, a stay-at-home mom in Raleigh, North Carolina, envisioned a better way to support hard-working local farmers while increasing access to farm fresh produce. What started as a small operation between friends and neighbors became a network that today fosters growth for more than 70 farmers and 90 artisan food businesses across the state.
At The Produce Box, their mission is simple:
In just 13 years, they’ve grown into a community of more than 200 moms and dads dedicated to providing fresh produce delivery statewide. Their local produce delivery services help their neighbors in the Charlotte, Triad, Triangle, and Wilmington areas eat healthier.
