The Frederica FarmsMay 24, 2019
Life in the South is centered around great cuisine and community. The Frederica Farms brings these together with a working community garden. Offering a site for owners to bring home freshly grown produce, wildflowers and even local honey from the over 40,000 honeybees cultivated right on site. St. Simons Island’s rich history of farming and our resident’s commitment to existing in harmony with nature, several owners took on the project to create the Frederica Farm.
An abundant array of locally grown fruits and vegetables are always available.
Fencing keeps our local wildlife from enjoying the bounty and an irrigation system keeps crops well-watered in the lowcountry summer heat, Of course a garden isn’t complete without a shed to store tools and a fence to keep the deer from snacking on the crops.
Produce at the Frederica Farm
In just a few short months, our garden has produced squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, green beans, eggplant, peppers, figs, blackberries, blueberries, spices and even Kumquats. Owners can enjoy local produce at the Frederica Golf Club. Sweet corn is growing and will make a wonderful summer treat for the table.
