Join our FarmBox home delivery program now and receive your first share next week! Your membership includes 26 weeks of our fresh veggies and other farm goodies.

Throughout the year we may have a week or two here and there without deliveries as seasonal production slows or because of extreme weather, but you'll get a total of 26 deliveries (52-week memberships are also available) and we'll keep in touch with regular e-mails about our schedule and what's happening here on the farm. We'll also send out recipes and meal plans, provide you with storage and preparation tips, and keep you informed about various agriculture-related issues.

Delivery is free and we deliver throughout Horry County plus north to Calabash and south to Pawleys Island. 

 

 

 

 

Sugarfoot Farms is a small third-generation family farm. Actually, four generations currently live on the property. It was primarily corn and tobacco a few decades ago when my grandfather was farming, but now in our eleventh year as Sugarfoot Farms we have created a diversified farm that is sustainable and humane. We do not use any synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or harmful chemicals and use only sustainable methods of controlling weeds, pests, and diseases. We use natural inputs and practices to maintain healthy, nutrient-rich soil and compost all of the waste materials that we can while reusing or recycling almost all of the rest. Beneficial plants such as marigold, nasturtium, borage, dill, bee balm, and calendula grow alongside our crops to deter pests and attract beneficial insects. We plant bee attractants and keep our own honeybees to increase pollination of our crops. All of our vegetables, herbs, tree fruits, berries, and nuts are hand-picked and irrigated judiciously with artesian water from our own wells and from stored rainwater. We are dedicated to protecting the genetic diversity of our food sources and grow lots of open-pollinated heirloom varieties as well as interesting hybrids that may be the heirlooms of tomorrow. We do not grow or sell any genetically-engineered products, and we do support seed companies that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge. Local produce is not only tastier than trucked-in commodities, but is much higher in vitamins and cancer-fighting antioxidants and you never have to worry about pesticide residues and genetically-modified organisms with our veggies.
