History of Stewart Farms

There has been a Stewart farming in Laurens County since the late 1700’s.  Our great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather Walter Stewart came to South Carolina from Ireland.  We’ve been farming ever since!!  Stewart Farms was established in 1993 by my parents, Jack and Helen Stewart.  After years of row cropping and long before anyone thought of the “buy local” idea, they decided to try direct-to-the-customer farming.  It has been quite the adventure!!  We have 3 generations of family working on the farm at present.
