The Gravatt Farm
The Gravatt Garden- Gravatt's gardening program began in 2009 with a few small garden boxes and a lot of hope. Of course, that first season ended up producing a basket full of tomatoes - and that was about it.
In 2014, thanks to a grant from the United Thank Offering, the support of donors, and the dedication of Gravatt staff, the Gravatt Gardens grew into Camp Gravatt Farms and produced over 4,300 pounds of food.
Today, guests at our conference center and summer campers enjoy meals prepared with zucchini, squash, okra, tomatoes, greens, cantaloupe, watermelon, and peppers - all picked daily and fresh as can be!
Our kitchen works throughout the year to preserve a great deal of food so guests can enjoy delicious vegetables and soups throughout the year.
Gravatt is a Fresh on the Menu member and our produce is Certified SC.
The Gravatt Animals- In addition to growing fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables, Gravatt also raises goats and chickens as part of our Environmental Education program. The goats are cared for as part of our summer camp program, and have proved to be a pivotal part of the camper experience. The chickens are raised for their eggs to be used in the Gravatt kitchen, served to hundreds of campers and guests throughout the year.

CSA (Community Supported Agrculture)
Gravatt Farms CSA shares will be available again in summer 2017. To join our 2017 CSA, please click here. A few details about our CSA program:
We promise to do our best to provide members with a bountiful share each week. The quantity of produce, flowers, or other goods may vary from week to week due to extreme weather, insects, or other production factors despite our best efforts. By joining our CSA, members agree to share the risk of crop failure with us and other members.
Members are responsible for picking up their share each week at the designated location and time and are responsible for observing the following pick-up rules:
- Bring your own bag and leave the box/basket at the site.
- Pick up your share within the time frame stated. We pick our produce at its freshest for our members and the effects of temperature and weather may cause it to decline if not picked up in a timely manner.
- Always respect the property, fellow members, parking lot courtesy, posted speed limits, and safety precautions.
The season will begin in late Spring and will last until the end of Summer – roughly between the first of June through mid August. Start date will be announced in early May.
