At Reedy River Farms, we grow high quality vegetable produce on a one(1)-acre plot less than a mile away from the center of Downtown Greenville. Being so close to town has its advantages: we are able to provide the most nutritious and flavorful food possible to our local food outlets and restaurants. To overcome the disadvantage of working on a small land base, we utilize every square foot of garden space by growing intensively and building soil organically to produce the highest quality of fruits and vegetables available. By reducing or even eliminating transportation energy and pesticide use, we are taking the first step towards a more sustainable food system.
