Welcome to Lowland Farms.

At Lowland Farms, we practice organic and sustainable farming methods.  We do not use any synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides.  We just started farming this land and hope to attain organic certification in three years.  We use organically certified seed as well as heirloom varieties of seed.  We also utilize a crop rotation and cover crops, working to rebuild the soil so we can farm not just this year, but for many years to come.

 

For the fall of 2017, we are happy to announce the twelfth season of our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program complete with two different share sizes: small and large. We anticipate this season’s CSA will 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 better than organic 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.
