Giving Back

The Watsons have always been passionate in giving back to the community. The farm partners with the areas local food banks in providing Organic Fruits and Vegetables to those who are in need. Watsonia believes that produce should not be wasted~ this means that when product doesn't make the cut during the grading process to be packed and shipped out, it is not tossed in the trash. For example, if some of what is harvested doesn't meet sizing requirements, is scratched or scared, or maybe just isn't as pretty as the rest of the bunch, it is set aside to be used for a more meaningful purpose! Once there is enough volume to supply to the food banks, they will send trucks to pick up whatever is available to serve those in need. The farm is very grateful to be a part of what these organizations are doing in South Carolina and Georgia, and the outreach they provide to the communities.
