Heritage Produce was established in 2010 by Margaret Bowen and is located at Shelton Herb Farm on Goodman Road in Leland. Margaret began organic vegetable production in 2009 in Bolivia, NC, and relocated her farming operation to Leland in the spring of 2010. At Heritage Produce we believe in nurturing the land and improving the environment through sustainable and organic farming practices. We work with nature to build the healthiest soils and to grow the freshest and tastiest produce to sell locally. Although we are not currently certified organic, all of our produce is grown without the use of synthetic or harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. We primarily sell our produce through our CSA program and to local restaurants, but also sell under the Shelton Herb Farm tent at various local farmers markets such as Southport waterfront, downtown Wilmington, and Wrightsville Beach.

I joined in the spring of 2010 because I LOVE veggies and thought this was a great way to have fresh produce. I like the idea of buying and supporting local business and I really enjoyed meeting Margaret and applaud her hard work in spite of the various elements she had to deal with from the hot summer to the fall with the torrential rains! Most exciting was the element of suprise,never knowing what was inside.... [more]

My family has been a member of the CSA for 2 years and LOVE it! We strongly believe in buying both organic and local. I love having a small farm so close to home.... [more]
