SHAREcropper's Farm is a small "farmette" in Upstate SC with naturally grown heirloom vegetables, herbs and flowers, and also fresh eggs. We have a 20 week long CSA harvest period during the spring - summer and a 10 week long fall harvest period. Weather permitting (this IS local food you know) there are weekly baskets of fresh produce sold on a limited basis throughout the winter months.
We are a multi generational,diversified family farm focused on sustainable agricultural practices. Currently, we raise a mixed flock of free-range chickens, Rouen and Mallard ducks, East Friesian sheep, registered Saanen and Saanen x Nubian goats, and Jersey Cattle. During the growing season we have heirloom vegetables, herbs, milk, eggs and herbal milk soaps and soaks.
Our animals are pasture raised, hormone and antibiotic free.
Red Hot Poker Farms is growing fruit, vegetables, heritage breed turkeys, cage-free fresh eggs and pasture raised beef - along with our four daughters. We participate in the City of Roswell Farmer's Market and we are weeks away from launching our first CSA.
We have spent the last several years building our farm with a wide variety of fruit trees as well as our vegetable and herb gardens, not to mention our flocks of chickens and farm-fresh eggs. Our chickens are Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, and a few other breeds. We would be glad to hatch chicks for those interested in beginning their own flocks. We do not raise grass-fed beef, but out backyard neighbors do -- please see the listing for Double Bridge Farm in Sugar Valley.
