The blueberries are here!!! We have just started picking and plan to have the field open for Pick-Your-Own around mid June. 

The excessive rain during the last few weeks of May ended the strawberry season sooner than usual. 

We're still harvesting greens such as kale, cabbage and are almost into the newest lettuce crop. The carrots and raddishs are growing and we are harvesting squash. We have a limited amount of blueberries at our markets, since we're waiting for the crop to ripen more. 

Not from our farm, but truly a taste of summer, we have delicious peaches, watermelons and cantaloupes.

Our Farm Market is open three days each week and we are at two locations in Myrtle Beach each week. Please refer to our website for more information. 

For weekly photos of the farm look us up on Facebook and Instagram!

Thank you to each one of you who has supported locally grown food the last few months! We look forward to seeing y'all more as we move into summer and the delicious fruits and vegetables it brings.

Currently on our harvest list: Carrots, strawberries, tender red and green lettuces, spinach, beautiful kale, yellow squash, zucchini, and chard.

Available in our Farm Market we have tomatoes, corn, melons, an assortment of vegetables and some of the very early SC peaches! 

If you haven't tried WK Price's locally grown, pasture raised beef or Fox Farms naturally and locally raised chicken, the freezer in our Farm Market has a selection of both!

We're excited that Myrtle's Market, the Myrtle Beach Farmer's Market is re-opening May 20th, 2020! This market will be open every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9:00 - 3:00. It's located at the corner of Oak Street and 10th Ave. in Myrtle Beach. 

Due to the re-opening of the Myrtle Beach Market, we will not be at the 8th Ave Market on Wednesdays. 

Our Farm Market, located on the farm, is open three days a week and we are at the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach every Thursday from 1:00 - 5:00 in the Market Common area.

Our Farm Market is now open three days a week! We are still harvesting cool season crops as well as strawberries.

We are looking froward to getting summer plants out of the greenhouse and into the field now that most of the cooler April evenings are behind us! The tiny pepper, eggplant, tomato and basil plants will be so happy to put their roots deep in the soil.

Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9:00 - 4:00 we'll have the produce that we are harvesting from the farm as well as produce that is not yet in season here such as tomatoes, cucumbers and corn.

Our Farm Market is located at 1542 Hickman Rd, NW, Calabash. 

We are still at the 8th Ave Location every OTHER Wednesday (we'll be there this week!) from 2:00 - 5:00, while we wait for the Myrtle's Market to re-open. This market is located at 714 8th Avenue N, Myrtle Beach. 

The International Culinary Institute is still holding a Farmer's Market on Thursdays from 1:00 - 5:00 OUTSIDE. This is located at 920 Crabtree Lane, Myrtle Beach.

It's official... We finally have strawberries!!!

While the entire field is not yet ripe, we are picking every week now, and will have some berries at every market location. Due to this being the beginning of the strawberry season, our supply is still limited and the we may sell out quickly.

We are selling the berries in quarts at $4.25/each and $5.25/each for Organic. At this time we are not selling flats but as the supply increases we expect to. 

In keeping with the local recommendations to help prevent the spread of COVID 19 we are delaying the Pick-Your-Own. We hope the strawberry production will continue until the beginning of June so it's possible we'll still be able to open the field for PYO later in the season! We'll keep y'all updated as we know more. 

Picked berries are available this Wednesday and every other Wednesday at the 8th Ave. Market. This is expected to continue until the Myrtle Beach Farmer's Market opens. 

         From 2:00 - 5:00 at 714 8th Ave N, Myrtle Beach 

 

Also on Thursday at the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach each week, where we are set up OUTSIDE. 

         From 1:00 - 5:00 at 920 Crabtree Ln, Myrtle Beach

 

And last but not least, at our Farm Market on the Farm every Saturday! 

         From 9:00 - 4:00 at 1542 Hickman Rd, NW, Calabash, NC

As the strawberry field produces more ripe berries we expect to have the Farm Market open more often. We will update when that changes. 

The Myrtle Beach Farmer's Market usually opens around the middle of April. At this time we are waiting on more information regarding when the market will re-open.

We are loving the cooler weather that Fall has brought and so are the crops! 

Our collards are growing rapidly as are our raddishes and we can't wait to move our tiny lettuce plants from the greenhouse into the field.
