I have bought produce from Lowland Farms at the Charleston Farmers Market for several years and love what they offer to our community. As part of my partnership with Lowcountry Local First’s: Eat Local Month Challenge, I’m excited to feature this farm and include them in my list of favs. http://lowcountrylocalfirst.org The Johns Island based farm is known for their practice of organic and sustainable farming methods. They dont use any synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides and are working to attain organic certification. They use organically certified seed as well as heirloom varieties of seed. They do crop rotations and cover crops, working to rebuild the soil so they can farm for many years to come. http://lowlandfarms.com
Spring 2017, marks their eleventh season with the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. They offer two different share sizes: small and large and the season is expected to run for 10-12 weeks with pickup points on James Island, Downtown Charleston, Johns Island, and at the farm.
Signing up for a CSA share is a way to support Lowland Farms and obtain fresh produce, herbs, flowers, and/or eggs each week for a flat rate of $275 for the small share, which feeds 1-2 people, or $425 for the large share, which feeds 4-6 people.
