Vacationers traveling to the Southport and Oak Island area can sigh in relief this summer. Margaret Rudd & Associates, Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with NC State University's Fork to Farmer project and local farmers to provide our guests with locally-grown produce during their vacations.
Each month this summer, guests may preorder a Vacation Vittles produce bag for each week of their stay.
The process is simple:
- Guests visit the online order page,
- Select the appropriate week(s) of their vacation,
- Dictate the number of bags being ordered; and,
- Process their payment.
Depending upon your month of travel, a Vacation Vittles bag will provide a variety of produce picked at the peak of freshness by our area farmers to feed a family of four with at least three servings of fruits and vegetables for your Oak Island vacation week. Ideas of what July purchasers may enjoy include summer and zuchini squash, blueberries, watermelon, a variety of tomatoes, sweet corn, herbs, cucumbers, green beans, okra, peaches, grapes, a variety of peppers, and a variety of lettuces and radishes.
Bags will be picked up at our Oak Island office upon check-in. Any bags not picked up by Sunday at noon will then be donated to a local food pantry.
