Lowland Farms’ heaps of colorful heirloom tomatoes, purple beans, wildflowers, onions, radishes, and carrots always attract attention at the Charleston Farmers Market. Everything is grown using organic methods by farmer Kenneth “Skinny” Melton. The five-acre diversified family farm set out to farm responsibly, sourcing seeds almost entirely from heirloom sources and managing pests with sustainable methods. They use chicken tractors to house six species of chickens, including the hawk-shaped Araucana hens that produce the blue and green eggs ($5/dozen) that Lowland sells at market. Their spring CSA comes in small ($250) and large ($400) sizes and runs for 12 weeks, with pick-up points on James Island, downtown, and the farm. You can also find their ingredients at the Macintosh, Butcher & Bee, FIG, the Grocery, and Slightly North of Broad.
