Rosebank Farms is Open at Kiawah River

It’s official— Rosebank Farms, a Johns Island staple and purveyor of fresh produce, seafood and honey owned by Charleston natives Sidi Limehouse and Louise Bennett, has relocated its farmstand to Kiawah River.  

Located at the entrance to Kiawah River on Betsy Kerrison Parkway, the farmstand offers a wide variety of goods in addition to fresh produce and seafood, such as prepared foods and gifts like sweetgrass baskets. Whether you’re searching for the ingredients for a farm-to-table meal of your own or looking to grab a quick meal to take home and heat up, Rosebank Farmstand has you covered. They’ll even have a handmade pie or two for dessert! 

This is a homecoming of sorts—what locals and Kiawah River residents may not know is that Sidi Limehouse grew up on the land on which Kiawah River is now. He says it was a “child’s paradise,” and we are honored to welcome him home to the land he knows best.   

Sidi is a man with deep Lowcountry roots and was a pioneer in growing crops in which no one else in South Carolina wanted to explore or invest. Today, Rosebank Farms’ 75-acre farm is known throughout the region by residents and chefs as a unique farm offering consistency and quality, producing more than 50 crops. In fact, Sidi was honored in 2019 as Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo’s South Carolina Farmer of the Year for his contributions and accomplishments to South Carolina’s agricultural landscape.  

Sidi has additionally farmed 30 of Kiawah River Farm’s 100-acres over the past 5 years, growing tomatoes, sweet potatoes, watermelons and flowers, among many other crops for Rosebank Farms.   

We are looking forward to a fruitful partnership that will provide our community with continued local food options and expand Kiawah River’s commitment to sustainability.   

From all of us at Kiawah River… Welcome home Sidi, Louise and Rosebank Farms!
