Flowers Farm

Flowers Farm
is near Summerton, South Carolina.
It is a wonderful local family owned farm that has rich soil with a clay base. The vegetables grown there are healthy and beautiful with a wonderful flavor. They have a wide variety of crops. In the photo below are two different kinds of peppers.

Todays crop was fresh picked and wonderfully abundant. Peanuts, bell peppers, zucchini squash, eggplant and melons. We were already dreaming of what supper might be. There is a movement in restaurants in the United States to use more local foods produced by family farms. It is easy to see why. They are not picked green, and shipped over long distances. Chemicals are not used to give them fake color, but they are grown the old fashioned way and picked fresh for you that day.
