Pete Ambrose is our farmer Extraordinaire! He has been plowing, planting, fertilizing and tending his farms since 1976. His passion for bringing fresh food to the lowcountry has kept him in a life that many have had to relinquish as bigger farms and corporate farming have driven out the "small guys".
Pete grew up in Charleston and making a living from the earth is all he's known. As a young man, running a shrimp boat in Rockville was his main stay. As his family grew he had the desire to stay "planted" and give up the long shrimping seasons that more than often took him to southern waters for weeks and months at a time. His stong connection to the local shrimping industry is what allows us to provide fresh local shrimp to our customers.
Keeping up with the changing times has brought Farmer Pete to sharing his produce locally through the Ambrose Family Farm CSA. His goal is to grow as much of his veggies and fruits as possible through organic practices.
Farmer Sam,his youngest son, is his cohort in the farming operation. Together they are able to keep the more than 130 acre farm producing many delicious healthy fuits and vegetable to send out into our community.
