Lowland Farms’ heaps of colorful produce always attract attention at the Charleston Farmers Market. Everything is grown using organic methods by farmer Kenneth “Skinny” Melton. The 14-acre, diversified family farm set out to farm responsibly, sourcing seeds almost entirely from heirloom sources and managing pests with sustainable methods. They do not use synthetic pesticides or fertilizer. The CSA program offers small and large shares and features farm-fresh produce, herbs, flowers, and eggs; sign up on their website. This spring, Melton will be selling heirloom head lettuces, onions, leeks, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, arugula, green garlic, herbs, flowers, and more at the downtown Charleston Farmers Market and the Sunday Brunch Farmers Market on James Island. You can also find their ingredients at the Macintosh, Butcher & Bee, FIG, the Grocery, Slightly North of Broad, and Husk.
