Our Mission

If it were easy and convenient, more families would be able to support hard-working NC farmers. Our aim is to make that possible.

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, our mission is simple:

  • To ensure every shopper knows where their food comes from.
  • To reward the efforts of local farmers.
  • To serve shoppers who can’t get to the farmers’ market every week.

In just 10 years, we’ve grown into a community of more than 200 moms and dads dedicated to providing fresh produce delivery statewide. Our local produce delivery services help our neighbors in the Charlotte, Fayetteville, Triad, Triangle, and Wilmington areas eat healthier.

How it Works


We source the produce for your box directly from local farmers all across North Carolina. The farmers we work with practice good agriculture, cultivating the land using sustainable techniques to grow the best fruits and vegetables.


You place your order every weekend, from Friday until Sunday at 9 p.m. Your fresh produce delivery arrives the following week. Choose from our specially curated boxes filled with recommended fruits, vegetables, and other local artisan products, or customize your own box. Feel free to skip a week if you need to.


Don’t wait for a delivery truck or the mail. One of our neighborhood coordinators will bring your box to your doorstep. Our coordinators are local and available to answer any questions you have about the process and how you can best feed your family with our current offerings.


Promoting Healthy Family Eating — One Box at a Time

As people with families of our own, we understand that making several trips to the store per week just isn’t practical. That’s why The Produce Box makes it easy to get what you want, from vegetable delivery to dairy delivery. Simply customize and place your order online, then wait for it to be hand-delivered.

And when you donate a box, you’ll help other local families eat healthier, too.

Workplace Wellness Programs

For more than a decade, we’ve been helping employees across North Carolina get and stay healthy via our various workplace wellness programs. The following are just a few of the ways we get involved:

  • Lunch-n-learns
