About Beechwood Farms, Slater, South Carolina

We farm because with farming we get a fresh start each spring and it is the center of our families life. Beechwood Farms sits on the banks of the North Saluda River in the foothills of Upstate South Carolina, gateway to the Blue Ridge Mountains. In this fertile river valley we produce a wide variety of vegetables. Our family farm appreciates our customers and always strives to grow and sell only the highest quality ‘vine ripened’ fresh fruits and vegetables. See my mobile profile at History: Beechwood Farms is owned and operated by Billy & Elizabeth Ledford. Billy began farming with the production of field corn on rented land in 1962. Buring the 1970's Beechwood expanded operations to include pole beans, squash, and bell pepper on land purchased in Cleveland, SC. Beechwood Farms U-Pick, our pick your own vegetables operation began in 1979 at Echo Valley in Cleveland, SC. Judy Best (Billy's sister) also started strawberry production at our present Marietta location in 1979. The U-Pick operation moved in 1981 to the Marietta farm behind J.P.S. Slater Plant. We produce a variety of different vegetables, with our largest crops being eggplants, strawberries, squash, sweet corn, tomatoes, and zucchini.
