FROM THE FARM

Farmer Pete Ambrose has been tending his farms in Wadamalaw since 1976. In addition to providing many of the vegetables featured throughout our menu, we are now excited to be one of a select few Charleston restaurants to serve Ambrose Family Farms’ heritage pork. Many of the ingredients in these dishes are from our friends at the farm.
