Growing For You For Over 100 Years
Careful and deliberate cultivation of the soil, a bold approach to business and an unwavering commitment to quality is the foundation of the Watson family legacy.
Founded in Early 1920’s
The farm’s founder, Joseph H. Watson Sr. was a pioneer in organizing fellow farmers in the early 1920s. His leadership and excitement inspired the introduction of asparagus, and later peaches, to the Ridge area of South Carolina.
Through the efforts of Joe, his wife Mary and their son Jerrold, the Watsons helped to form the Monetta Asparagus Association—a move which lead to Monetta, SC becoming the asparagus capital of the world.
Guided by “100 years of practice”, this Watsonia team produces a vast variety of high-quality organic fruits and vegetables making it easy for buyers to easily place their orders with a consistent provider.
A Farming Legacy
A farming legacy which has survived the great depression, recessions, wars and setbacks is well positioned to meet the needs of today’s produce buyer.
The values of hard work, resourcefulness, determination and service, instilled from generation to generation, live on in the hearts and minds of those who lead Watsonia Farms today.
