Watsonia Farms

Joe & Jerry Watson, Monetta, SC
In their second year of growing organic peaches along the “Ridge” section of South Carolina, Jerry and Joe Watson are pioneers in organic peach farming on the East Coast. In a region full of conventional peach orchards, the humid environment deters most farmers from trying to grow the fragile fruit organically. Four generations of Watsons have been active in farming at Watsonia Farms, where they currently farm 900 acres of peaches and 180 acres of organic produce in Monetta, South Carolina.

Am always looking for the perfect tomato. Found it in the Watson's organic tomato I bought at the Whole Foods in Birmingham last Sunday! Wish I had purchased more now. I live too far from the store to go back and get more!
