(See drop down menu under “Fox Trot Farm Market” tab on website menu for more detailed information.)

Our Meat: Fox Trot Farm is registered and inspected by the state of South Carolina and the USDA to sell meat from our farm. Our processor is a USDA and certified humane facility, Williamsburg Processing in Kingstree, SC, which means that we can sell our meat across state lines and to restaurants, as well as from our farm and in farmers’ markets.

Lamb Price Sheet:

Our Eggs: Our hens live in the fresh air and sunshine. They are a mixture of heritage breeds, so the eggs vary in size and color from dark brown to green and pale blue. We wash our eggs according to state standards and refrigerate them immediately, so you have no worry about handling them while you are cooking, and they are ready to use straight from the carton. We wash them so you don’t have to! They are still just $3.50/dozen and we love to recycle cartons, so please save them for us. According to state regulations, fresh eggs are best used in six weeks from the day of pickup.

Our Honey: Our two small apiaries on Fox Trot Farm produce great honey, and we simply strain and bottle it, so it’s raw and pure. We sell our honey in quality glass jars that look beautiful on your table and make delightful gifts. Priced accordingly while supply lasts.

Our Soap: Our soap is made with care by hand here on the farm, and contains our honey and beeswax. We have a lovely selection of colors and fragrances. Some are made with lard or tallow and/or vegetable oils, some contain botanicals, and others sparkly mica or ingredients such as activated charcoal. All of them contain olive oil and natural colorants such as ground annatto seed, ground seaweed, paprika, turmeric, and other spices and plant products, as well as minerals that provide beautiful colors.  We use essential oils and premium fragrance oils in our soaps. These premium soaps are guaranteed to get you clean, and our customers love them. They are made in small batches and many are seasonal selections. They are $6/each or $25 for 5

Farm Tours: $5.00/person guided or self guided on Market Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and by appointment on other days for groups of a minimum of 10 people over 2 years of age.

  1. Hello,
    I love lamb. But the most chemically changes when a lamb lives over 6 months. Then it becomes mutton. My question is do you process any lamb at the 6 month?
    Thank you.

    • Lamb meat becomes mutton when the animal reaches about a year old, according to USDA standards. It is a physiological occurrence, you are correct, although the breed of sheep we raise is noted for not developing a strong flavor even at an older age. Our lamb is processed at about 11 months at a certified humane processing facility, the meat is tender and mild tasting, and the cuts are just the right size for we Americans, who enjoy a nice big chop, rack, or leg. If you are used to the strong flavor of New Zealand lamb, or even stronger mutton, please give our lamb a try. We know you will love it. We sell our lamb meat from here on our farm and also at the Waxhaw Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings, so we hope to see you soon. Call me at 803-804-3541 if you’d like to come take a look at what we have and see how we raise our sheep. Thanks so much for asking!

  2. Hi Sir,
    I have a question about where to find your products (we look for raw lamb milk) in downtown Columbia, SC.

    Thanks

    • I’m sorry that I cannot help you with that. We don’t milk our sheep and I sure don’t know of anyone locally who does. You might check with the state agri-tourism association to see if they know.

      Best of luck!
      Debbie

  4. Howdy, Foxtrot Farm Folks,
    I’m an American, European-trained chef (3 star restaurants: NYC, Princeton, Woodstock and others) and former instructor at The Cordon Bleu, who now lives in Charlotte, since that’s where my grandkids live. I’m delighted to learn of a true, local, farm-raised alternative to the shrink-wrapped, gamy New Zealand lamb one sees everywhere (including Whole Foods!) I look forward to visiting the farm soon, and wanted to ask if you ever make your processed (Frenched) racks of lamb available anywhere else than the farm, such as any regional Farmer’s Markets? There are regular Farmer’s Markets near me in Matthews, Mint Hill, off Billy Graham Parkway and smaller, produce only as well. If not, I’ll be happy to make the trip one of these Sunday afternoons. Thanks!

    • Hello Chef! We look forward to your visit and talking recipes with you!

      We don’t sell at any farmer’s markets, although we could since our meat is USDA stamped. Folks enjoy coming to the farm with their coolers to stock up on our lamb and eggs, and taking a tour while they’re here to see how we raise our animals. Which LCB campus were you an instructor? We just have to meet and so please do come see us one Sunday afternoon, and bring the grandkids, too!

      Deb
