Welcome to the Fish Haul Farmers. We took our name from the creek that runs behind our farm. We are located in a sunny field next to the Port Royal Plantation tennis courts just off Ft. Walker Drive. Please come visit our farm and watch the progress we are making in learning how to grow vegetables in the Low Country. We are fortunate to have a very long growing season here, so we plan on getting more than one harvest per year. Many items can be grown through the late fall and even into the winter season on the island.
Part of the fees will be used to build and maintain the fence that will keep deer and rabbits from dining on our delicacies, unlike our yards which provide plenty of nibbles for the local wildlife. We also have water and electricity at our site and anticipate building a garden shed within a year or two.
We will be working in 6 x 12 x 1 high beds, small enough to easily manage, but large enough for the usual tomato, radishes and bean plants. Water spigots are shared between three to four (3-4) beds and can be placed on timers if you desire. If you are a part-time resident, you may cover your beds to reduce maintenance and weed issues while you are gone, thus returning to a bed ready for use. We also have a designated organic area for those interested in chemical free gardening.
Come see the newest amenity in Port Royal Plantation and consider joining us today! Fish Haul Farm is full and now taking names for a wait list. Contact Ken Gruber at 681-5168 for more information.
