East Cooper Land Trust’s fourth annual Harvest Feast event will take place Oct. 25 at Johnson Family Farms in McClellanville.

Fall in the Lowcountry is the perfect time to enjoy getting outside. You can do this while helping to conserve local land at East Cooper Land Trust’s fourth annual Harvest Feast event on Thursday, Oct. 25. The event will take place at Johnson Family Farms in McClellanville.

This community farm supper kicks off with music by The Lowhills and Bogan Mask, and charcuterie by local chef Brannon Florie of On Forty-One, Pier 41 and Pier 22. Florie has a history with the farm, having started his charcuterie program there. For the fourth year, Florie will be delighting guests with a five-course supper in honor and celebration of local land.

In 2014, with funding from the Charleston County Greenbelt Program and the South Carolina Conservation Bank, East Cooper Land Trust acquired this property formerly known as Thornhill Farm. This 94-acre farm will forever be agricultural and protected from subdivision. When farms are profitable, and farming is valued, it decreases the threat of losing other farms to incompatible development.
