Come create memories with your friends or family one berry at a time!

There is nothing quite like picking sun-ripened strawberries right off the plant the way God meant it to be.

Reconnect with each other and the land by visiting our pick-your-own strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. We welcome you to bring your family and friends for a memorable experience.

  • When can I pick berries?
    The PICK-YOUR-OWN schedule varies due to the South Carolina Lowcountry weather and crop abundance. Our seasons generally run as follows: March – May: Strawberries June: Blackberries & Blueberries May – June: Fresh Produce
  • What should I wear?
    We suggest appropriate footgear like sneakers, boots, and other closed-toe shoes that can be worn in dirt rows with occasional puddles due to rain. Dress for the weather; bring a hat and sunscreen for the sunny days. NOTE: The ground can be uneven and you may find an ant mound on your adventure.
  • Do you have to pick your own?
    Not up to the Pick-Your-Own experience? We’ve got you covered! All baskets are based on availability and can be reserved in advance by calling (843)-822-9544. Pick up a basket of freshly picked berries in our farm market and, while you're there, check out all our fresh produce, jams, raw milk, eggs, and local beef and pork!
  • When is the best time to pick produce?
    The best times to get our produce are... Strawberries: (March-May) Blueberries & Blackberries: (June) Summer Veggies: (May-July) Fall Veggies: (November-December)
  • What is the best way to pick strawberries?
    Please sanitize your hands before picking. Pick by pinching the stem of the berry between your thumb and forefinger. This will prevent damage to both the fruit and the strawberry plant. Leaving the caps on helps your strawberries last longer. When selecting berries, look for the ones that are plump, firm, and well-colored. A tip to remember: PICK THE REDDER ONES, NOT THE GREEN ONES. Our farm is a working farm, so be aware of your surroundings when picking as you may encounter fire ants and other friends with stingers. Please watch where you are walking and give the bees some space to work. We are grateful they are buzzing around and pollinating the fruits and vegetables.
  • What is the best way to store strawberries?
    Strawberries are best when prepared and eaten in the same day, but if you must keep them longer, store them in your refrigerator. Arrange the berries in a shallow container, separating out any damaged berries. Do not remove the caps or wash the berries until you are ready to use them.
  • What is the best way to freeze strawberries?
    Whole berries: Place one layer of clean, capped berries on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and package in freezer bags. Sliced berries: Add ½ cup sugar per quart of berries. Stir and allow the mixture to stand until sugar dissolves. Pack the fruit and juice into freezer bags or containers. Leave ¼ inch head space for pint containers. Sugar is not necessary for freezing but will help preserve color and texture.
  • Are pets allowed when picking?
    Pets are NOT allowed in the fields. They are welcomed in the green space on a leash.
  • Is smoking allowed?
    Please NO Smoking while handling fruits and vegetables.
  • What kind of events do you host?
    From late February to early March, we have our main event called the Blessing of the Berries, where we have live entertainment, food, farm tours, barrel train rides, and crafts for kids. During the months of March through June, we host our Friday Nights at the Farm, which happen every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month. We have live entertainment, food trucks, and family fun!
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    We accept cash and card. We do not accept checks. There is a 3.5% convenience fee on card payments.
  • What vegetables are in season during the fall?
    During the months of November and December, we have Collards, Turnips, Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Swiss Chard. Note: Please check our social media pages for special deals and shipments.
  • What does your nursery offer?
    Beginning in March, visit our garden center for beautiful flowers and bedding plants to complete your landscape. We offer a large variety of ferns, hanging baskets, and roses. Vegetable and herb plant packs are also available seasonally to fill your home garden.
  • What other products do you sell at your farm store?
    We have homestyle jams, salad dressings, raw milk, fresh eggs, ice cream, and local beef and pork. During the summer stop in for our cool refreshing strawberry slushies. Don't forget to pick up one of our farm t-shirts as well!

Please remember: Our farm is a working farm, so be aware of your surroundings when picking as you may encounter fire ants and other friends with stingers.  Please watch where you are walking and give the bees some space to work.  We are grateful they are buzzing around and pollinating the fruits and vegetables.
