Gene MurphreeBack in the Summer of 1976, I started out selling fruits and vegetables out of my truck. I quickly grew to love the business. My father worked at a grocery store produce section. In the Spring of 1978 I found this location and started out basically as a small fruit and vegetable stand. My son Brad took his first step here. With so many loyal customers that have stayed with us so many years, I truly feel blessed.This line of business comes with many challenges. One being not knowing what will be available in any given season. However, I would rather be without a particular fruit than put out a poor quality product.We want to be part of the community and be here for our customers with a fair price and make them feel like family.
Kathy MurphreeI had an offce job for about 10 years and started working at Murphree’s in 1986.My son Brad was born in 1987 and we set up a nursery in the back of the store. Many of our customers have watched him grow. Some held and played with him. I remember putting him in apple boxes for him to play in.It is a joy to see happy, satisfied customers come back time and time again.
Brad MurphreeI have practically grown up at Murphree’s. I have been here since I was born. I started working Summers at the age of 15 and came on full time after high school and became an owner in 2010.I truly enjoy the daily routine, interacting with customers and helping them find what they are looking for. And also offer information and advise.Working at Murphree’s isn’t a job, it is the life I love.
