New Farm News!

booths

We had a successful Fall Farm Day! We were able to host 20 vendors and bring out an estimated 300 customers to shop local small businesses! This was the very first event on our new farm property located in Wellford, SC, and we couldn’t be happier about the turnout.

 

 

 

We are thrilled to be in this new location which houses 2 barns and nearly 3 times the acreage of our Duncan location. With the new space we plan to hold more events such as this one, plus weddings, portrait sessions, and dinners for other occasions.

Plant List 2018

We’ve survived some frigid weather this winter and while we are thankful for it as it only helps to rid the area of the pests that do so much damage, we are very much looking forward to Spring with its warmer temperatures and opportunities to be back in the dirt! We have placed our seed order just this week, and now we can publish our Plant List so that you all can start planning your gardens with your Harp & Shamrock Croft plants! Take a look: Plant list 2018
