Perdeaux Fruit Farm - Travelers Rest, South Carolina
If you're near Travelers Rest, South Carolina during the summer or in the fall then you might want to make a stop by Perdeaux Fruit Farm. We stopped by in early July and by then it was already too late to find a lot of summer produce because they had been cleared out, but they have other seasonal fruits and products that they sell throughout the year. I would just call ahead to see what is available. Thankfully, a few peaches were available, so we grabbed some of those and they were delicious. We discovered this place on our South Carolina Agritourism Paspports, which led us to 15 farms.
Not only can peaches be found here, but blueberries, blackberries, corn, and melons are available during the summer. Personally, I was hoping for a cantaloupe, but because of the drought seeming to cause a shortage and the popularity they were long gone. A small amount of watermelons still remained though. Later in the season they also have muscadines, pears, and plums. They also have a lot of apples from their orchard. Products like apple cider and jellies are made from what they grow too.
The farm shares they grow 12 varieties of fruits, and they make 12 varieties of preserves and sauces. There is a lot to find here and it seems to be a hopping spot. They are open from June till November Wednesday till Saturday from 10 a.m. till 5:30 p.m., and Sunday from 12:30 p.m. till 6 p.m. Check out the Facebook page for updates of what they have and for exact hours and days of operations as they could change. Perdeaux Fruit Farm is a South Carolina Certified Roadside Market.
