Get out of the house, and head to Ambrose Family Farm. The U-Pick strawberries program is running now and should be available through early May. Other crops for spring include strawberries, carrots, beets, kale and turnips. Everything on the farm is grown as naturally and organically as possible. Ambrose offers a CSA, with four seasonal subscriptions each lasting from six-13 weeks. The Early Spring subscription starts in April, and Early Summer starts mid-May. Share sizes come in small, medium, and large to suit your family’s needs and can be delivered weekly or bi-weekly. Everything in the CSA box is guaranteed fresh from the farm, though customers may use the website to add on additional produce, meats, cheeses, eggs, shrimp and other foods and gifts from the region. Expect fresh beets, turnips, carrots, and tomatoes to be prominent throughout the year. There are about 25 CSA drop-off spots throughout Charleston, or you can pick up your box at the farm. On the way home from your farm visit, stop by their Stono Market and Tomato Shed Café on Johns Island to purchase groceries (pigweed, purslane, dandelion greens, and lamb quarters), and get a bite of the farm’s fresh foods to eat. You can find more information on Stono Market in the Purveyors section. Plus, look for Ambrose produce at your favorite restaurants downtown.
