Re: “Williams Muscadine Vineyard and Farm

This is an awesome place! If you have not visited the vineyard and farm, you must do so during the 12th Muscadine Festival during Labor Day weekend of 2015.

Re: “Myers Blueberries

The best orchard I've seen! Big, ripe, sweet blueberries, and easy picking. Well worth the trip to Summerville.

Re: “Joseph Fields Farms

RightOnQue food vendor uses Joseph Fields Farms vegetables and fruits in our weekly Saturday offerings at the Charleston Farmers Market (Marion Square). We buy his produce for personal use as well, the fresh organic farming really is evident in the flavor! We appreciate their business!!

Re: “Legare Farms

Total Garbage. Do not get a CSA from them. They claim they grow their own produce, but alas, all they grow is more and more paranoid and resentful. When asked where the produce came from they claimed it was from their farm. I went on a tour of the farm and there is nothing growing there. At all.

Re: “Rita's Roots Backyard Harvest

Rita has transformed our backyard into a garden producing veggies, flowers, and fruits year-round. Her knowledge of organic agriculture is vast and her enthusiasm is contagious! We highly recommend Rita's Backyard Harvest program to bring the most healthy and delicious bounty to your table!

Re: “Rita's Roots Backyard Harvest

We love how Rita has transformed our yard into a year-round-producing garden of organic vegetables, flowers, and fruits. Her knowledge is tremendous and her enthusiasm is contagious, and the veggies taste so much better than those shipped from many miles away. We highly recommend her services!

Re: “Middleton Place

This will be my second time visiting Middleton Gardens and I can't wait. I intend to use Omega Transportation as my ride ( since I can save 10% on a round trip) and I will tour the gardens after the demonstrations. I know the gardens will be beautiful this time of year. And I won't have to fight the traffic, so I am really excited.

Re: “Legare Farms

And also, the corn maze died according to the owner. You can't control nature, so it seems like they used innovation instead of giving up. They cut a maze through hedges. Alot of work goes into the upkeep of the place. The questions also did not seem unfriendly to a child either. It woudl be hard to have a maze that suited everyone if the questions throughout were suited to four year olds.

Re: “Legare Farms

Actually the farms seem alot of fun to me. It was completely family friendly (except for haunted hay ride). Boone Hall is more well known, but that does not make it better. I saw many kids going through the maze and did fine. People seemed to have a lot of fun

Re: “Legare Farms

When my 4 year old twins and I arrived to Legare Farms, we saw signs leading us to a 'CORN' maze; however, the maze turned out to be a non-children friendly 'MYRTLE' maze. The path desperately needs to be bush hogged so children can walk through the path without becoming scratched/scraped up by tall grasses and tree limbs. As for the 'fun' questions, the game was too advanced for young kids. The whole experience of Legare Farms was mediocre in my opinion. After going through the Myrtle maze, my family and I did not even want to take the hay ride. I strongly suggest taking the kids to Boone Hall Plantation instead for a fun-filled day with your young ones.

Re: “Boone Hall Farms

Very good show overall, I thought the Village People gave me more of what I came for, but they were both good. We left early as people started to crowd up into the aisles of the seats, making it just too hot to stick around.

Re: “Boone Hall Farms

I was there and loved the performace. It was VERY hot though! - JA
