3 L Farms

Locale ID NC4000

Run by Don Lunsford
  new    popular 


Don Lunsford of 3L Farms has been selling Whole Foods Market his greenhouse lettuce since 2002. He is a great example of a local producer - his local lettuce goes to the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill stores. Whole Foods Market purchases about a third of his product, with the rest being sold at farmers markets and to other customers.

In order to expand his business, Don will be using his loan funds to build a greenhouse for tomatoes. He expects to produce about 1,400 pounds of tomatoes each week from March to December. In addition to significantly increasing Don's revenue, the production will allow Whole Foods Market to have a greater supply of locally-grown tomatoes. So thanks in advance from our North Carolina customers, Don!
