About KT Produce
KT Produce is a local family-owned wholesale produce distribution company located just down the road in Lowell, Arkansas.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit and schools & restaurants closed, KT lost 90% of their business overnight. With a warehouse full of perishable food on hand, and area groceries struggling to keep up with inventory and pick up options; they immediately took action to get healthy food in the hands of local families by selling direct to consumer for the first time.
The community response was incredible and it has kept them afloat. Quickly after they began, they saw the need to expand their offerings to other staple goods like eggs, bread, honey and local cheeses. But their most popular option has been their signature KT FRESH BOX:
A variety mystery box, curated by them daily that includes staple vegetables, fruits, fresh greens, sometimes an adventurous item you may not have worked with before, a few things that go well together, and suggested recipes! It is an overstuffed 1/2 bushel box of produce--always over 20lbs and market price is around $35--over 30% savings off retail.
We will be cooking from these boxes!
