About us

Hello –

The Turtle Factory is a “Brick and Mortar” business, started by Ann and Kenneth Krieger in 1999.  Since then we have successfully built the "The Turtle Factory" into a respected and unique shop in Sneads Ferry, NC.

Sneads Ferry still carries on the time honored Shrimp Festival the 2nd weekend of August that generally brings thousands of visitors every year...and growing.

So beginning in 1999 we started in a 400 square foot store and gradually moved into larger places and we now currently are in a 3200 square foot store that we moved into in 2011 (All within a 1/2 mile of our starting place).  We have since then learned about our customers and how we hope best to serve them. As we began to move forward we are excited about bringing in new product lines, local Artist items, ceramic and canvas painting inside of The Turtle Factory.

We have had an online store (website) since 2004 and take pride of shipping our orders usually within 24 hours. 

Kenneth is a Veteran of Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom and retired from the Marine Corps in 2004.  Ken currently keeps the website up to date and makes the ceramic bisques that customers come in to paint in our store!!

We are interested, and looking forward to hearing from you about what you’d like to see here online and in our store.
