Out of all the vendors at the Mt. Pleasant and downtown farmers markets, we are always impressed by the variety of heirloom produce Owl’s Nest Plantation grows. Their price point reflects quality, but it’s hard to be bothered by the extra cost when you bring home a bag of such colorful and interesting food. We love their Peruvian fingerlings (purple potatoes) and golden beets. They’re also known for growing up to 37 different varieties of heirloom tomatoes. This fall, they’ll be harvesting winter squashes, carrots, radishes, beets, and bringing 10 to 15 varieties of apples down from the Upstate. David Howe owns the farm, which is certified naturally grown. Owl’s Nest also operates as a full-service organic and natural food purveyor that will deliver food directly to businesses.
