How We Got Started

Apple Crate Naturals, founded in 1997 by Brenda Harris, is a family-owned and operated health and wellness store. As a new mother, Brenda's quest for natural remedies for infants and children ignited her passion for healthier living. Her vision and dedication led to the establishment of Apple Crate Naturals, which has grown from a modest 800 sq ft store in historic Hope Mills to two thriving locations in Hope Mills and Fayetteville. The store's growth has been fueled by a genuine commitment to inspiring healthier communities and connecting individuals to real food and natural alternatives.

Today, the stores stand as a testament to Brenda's commitment to promoting organic products and empowering communities. As a family business, Brenda's adult daughters, Emily and Allison, have joined the endeavor and now play an essential role in managing the store. Their collective efforts and warm, knowledgeable approach have made them a trusted haven for health-conscious individuals seeking natural solutions.
