Rosebank Farms Moves Home to Kiawah River
John Denver said it best, “It’s good to be back home again, sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend…it’s good to be back home again.” And Sidi Limehouse, owner of Rosebank Farms, agrees. Rosebank Farms is moving to Kiawah River, and we couldn’t be happier!
Rosebank Farms, a Johns Island staple and purveyor of fresh produce, seafood and honey owned by Charleston natives Sidi Limehouse and Louise Bennett, will move its farmstand to Kiawah River this summer with a permanent structure coming soon.
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 acres at Kiawah River 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!
