We are a family run farm dedicated to sustaining the practice of agriculture on the sea islands of South Carolina and offering opportunities to learn about and participate in sustainable regenerative agriculture.We are a year-round diverse farm growing vegetables, citrus, herbs, heritage turkeys, chickens & eggs, sheep and fleece, quail, ducks, rabbits, algae and black soldier fly larva (seasonal).
We are involved in serious research in regenerative practices. Only those workawayers committed to the practice of agriculture will participate in these opportunities. If you make a commitment to us, please remember that we are limited in the number of people we can accept. If you don't fulfill your commitment, you have prevented someone else from having the opportunity.
Veterans encouraged to apply.
Whether you are coming for the minimum two week visit or staying for many months, our farm is the perfect opportunity to see if you truly want to have a homestead. We've learned so much more from hands on than we ever could from the many wonderful books out there. The research projects we take on, adaptations necessary for the sustainability of our farm and our needs have enlightened us. We must stress that weather, available resources and many other factors impact the work that will be available during your visit.
We offer the opportunity for visitors to truly understand the complexities of developing sustainable homesteads. We currently operate on two sites, but volunteer in community gardens throughout the community. Workawayers have the opportunity to participate in activities on all sites.
Please come with an open heart and open mind. We know what works here. It will be very different from other places.
Each week, we set up a schedule of activities and chores. Most of the time, we have a number of visitors with different levels of experience or time here. Depending on the time of year, the work day begins between 6:00 am and 8:30 am. The hotter it is, the earlier you will want to start working. We generally work until lunch and break until evening chores. If we start as late as 8:30 am, we don't break for lunch until around 1:00 pm.With livestock, there is no day off. We work 7 days a week. Remember, you are coming to learn about homesteading. Morning work is approximately 5 hours and evening chores are 1 hour. Afternoons and evenings after chores are your time to site see and explore. The exception is when it is your turn to cook for the group. Good news, if you cook, you don't have to clean up.
As noted earlier, we are involved in a number of projects, including some research. Some of these projects are seasonal and may not be included in opportunities you will have on the farm.
We invite engaged visitors to join us in other activities. We are learning all the time and enjoy having others join us in this process. Recent activities have included processing wool, spinning wool, weaving, cheese making, making home remedies, natural cleaning products, etc.
If you are looking to learn about the operation of a commercial farm, our farm is not the best place for you to visit.
Lodging assignments are at our discretion. We have three guest rooms in the upstairs of the house with shared bathrooms. Bedrooms are shared.
All Workawayers participate in meal planning, preparation and clean up on a rotational basis. We spend a great deal of time together in the evening reviewing the day and planning for tomorrow.
Within twenty minutes of the farm are some of the most beautiful and historic sites in the United States. Our beaches range from remote natural environments to offbeat beach communities. The cultural opportunities rival those of any city in the world. The same is true for our restaurants, microbreweries, distilleries, and farmers' markets.
