The Turner Farm is a fifth generation family farm transitioning from conventional row crops to organic produce for sale in our Delivered Subscription Produce Box (CSA) boxes, at farmer’s markets, to our chefs at popular Wilmington area restaurants, and at small local grocery stores.

The Turner Farm is located in Teachey, North Carolina, about 40 minutes from Wilmington.

 

 

Owned and operated by Stephen Douglass, (the grandson of Manley Turner, Sr., ) and his sons Ian and Garrett, the Turner Farm specializes in specialty produce with an eye toward nutritional and culinary value for it’s Subscription Produce Box Membership.

 

A Family History

The farm was purchased by my great grandfather, Bert Turner, and operated by him and his 8 kids. The kids were my great- uncles and aunts and they were all really amazing people. All of them eventually left the farm to get jobs up North, or go into the military, except my grandfather, Manley Turner, who stayed to help his father. Grandaddy inherited the farm and was quite good at growing tobacco and strawberries.
