You won’t find a family more dedicated to their way of life (and more willing to fight to maintain it) than the Legares on Johns Island. In operation since 1725, Legare Farms is run by siblings Thomas, Linda, and Helen, the ninth generation of farmers on the 375-acre plot. The Legares are able to continue farming by creatively attracting visitors with events all year long. From hayrides to horse rides to myrtle mazes and pumpkin patches, this is the farm for family fun. You can even build your own scarecrow after visiting with the sheep, goats, rabbits, cows, and chickens. The Legares operate one of the oldest CSAs in Charleston, with plenty of tomatoes and collards to satisfy your appetite for Southern cooking. The regular season produce CSA begins at the end of April, with Full and Half shares available at five pick-up locations in the area. There is also a Butcher’s Club program for purchasing their antibiotic- and hormone-free eggs, pork, and beef. They use sustainable practices, feeding day-old bread and leftover grains from the local breweries to their pigs and cattle.
