We are husband and wife team, Laura and Jarett. We've known each other for many years, but recently got married and craved a simple life in the country. Between us, we've lived all over the Southeast and settled on Jackson, SC to call our home.
We love the outdoors and the satisfaction of a hard day's work. We love campfires and music and stars.
Both of us love to eat fresh food and produce, especially tomatoes, so we'll be planting a variety of heirlooms to try. Our plans and dreams are never ending for this farm, and we're always trying to make it better.
While renting a house next door to an old, abandoned golf course, we kept thinking, "someone oughta DO SOMETHING with that beautiful property!" That, coupled with the weekly drive "to town" for groceries got us wondering, what if we could grow or buy local all the fresh produce we want? We took it a step further and decided we would try to create a space where farmers and artisans could come together and meet their community and sell them fresh food directly. And our dream for Boondocks Farms was born.
We bought the property and got straight to work; fixing up the farmers market store, building gardening beds, using old windows to create a greenhouse, fencing in a small pasture and building barns for our goats and donkey, and enclosing a chicken run for fresh eggs.
Now it's time to share with you. Come visit us! Browse the store, check out the local vendors, enjoy our food vendors, sit by the bonfire, relax and enjoy the outdoors. We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received and extremely encouraged by your interest.
We invite you to slow down and stay a while.
