The Turner Farm is a fifth generation family farm transitioning from conventional row crops to organic produce for sale in our 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. We also operate the farm at River Bluffs in Castle Hayne, ten minutes from downtown Wilmington. River Bluffs is a gorgeous new residential development on the North Cape Fear River. The owner/developers at River Bluffs have placed great importance on sustainable living, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work with them and provide their homeowners (and the Wilmington area residents) with good clean food.

In an effort to provide good microgreens and salad mixes during the hottest months, we are also developing a hydroponic growing system inside of shipping containers using a combination of old school floating “Speedling” trays and modern day LED lighting and environmental control systems.

Together, these three endeavors constitute Turner Family Farms, LLC.

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.
