Rosebank Farms farm stand has closed

Sorry to report that our beloved Rosebank Farms farm stand, with its fruits and vegetables, shrimp and fish, fresh cut flowers, art gallery, museum, talking parrot, and wonderful collection of farm animals and birds, is now closed. Rosebank Farms was extremely successful; however, their lease on the property where the farm stand stood was not renewed.

The animals have moved to the winery on Wadmalaw Island. Sidi Limehouse, owner of Rosebank, hopes to reopen the farm stand at a nearby location later this year.

It will be a little different without Sidi around, and all the good veggies.

The farm stand is gone, but Sidi is still around, doing his sustainable farming and getting ready to open again in a new location. I'll keep you posted on new developments.

I thought the lease was up on the farming fields as well?

Sidi has plans ... as well as friends and family with land around the area. Here is a video of the dismantling of the farm stand, along with comments from Sidi: kiawahtv.com/2011/…

The building is down, but he's still working on cleaning up the site (been by it a couple of times in the last day or two). It's very sad.

We are looking forward to his opening in a new location, I believe he's thinking sometime this spring or summer.

Our family has relied on Rosebanks for years. We visit Kiawah 3 to 4 times a year and visit the stand religiously each time. We were so sad to find it closed upon our last visit. Please come back soon!!! It's part of our family tradition!

Is there any more news about when and if Rosebank Farms might reopen. Have been coming to Seabrook Island for several years for vacation and that was one of the first places we headed to get their wonderful fruits and vegetables and a huge bunch of flowers. Hoping that they will show up somewhere in the area.

We're here now, have not heard anything. Last we heard there was a chance there might be something this spring/summer (at a different location), but have not heard anything more.
