About Us

We love fresh produce! It is the very essence of what everyone at L&M does every day. We pour our heart and soul into growing onions, potatoes, peppers, cucumbers, apples, cabbage, broccoli, melons and more. Then, we carefully harvest, grade and package them and bring them to market, keeping you in mind every step of the way. Why all the effort? Because we want you to love fruits and vegetables just as much as we do.

 

History and values

L&M was founded in 1964 by Joe McGee. Joe grew up on a small family farm located in Johnston County, North Carolina. His parents taught him the value of a hard day’s work and strong relationships. After more than five decades, we are still well grounded in the same principles; we work hard – with respect, passion, leadership and excellence – and always with unyielding integrity.

 

Helping our customers succeed

It’s worth repeating that we are passionate about our produce. Getting the right product to you at the right time is a goal that drives every member of the L&M team. Understanding your needs is important to us and knowing what it takes to get the job done is our expertise. In the end, we can’t promise perfection, that’s just not something you can guarantee in this business (we are relying on the weather after all), but we do promise persistence. You can rest assured that we’re going to do everything we can to bring you the very best fresh produce.
