Kiawah River announces grand opening of Rosebank Farms

April 16, 2024

Kiawah River, a waterfront community and the region’s only agrihood, is pleased to announce the grand opening of Rosebank Farms, a Johns Island staple and purveyor of fresh produce, seafood and honey owned by Charleston natives Sidi Limehouse and Louise Bennett. Situated at the community’s entrance at 3883 Betsy Kerrison Parkway, this partnership relocates the farmstand to the land on which Limehouse grew up and Kiawah River is now located, where it provides the greater community with continued local food options while furthering Kiawah River’s commitment to sustainability.

On April 13, the community held a grand opening event featuring live music, refreshments and tastings.
“With the grand opening of Rosebank Farms, we celebrate a blend of tradition and innovation, nurturing not just crops, but community connections,” says Chase Williston, Director of Development at Kiawah River. “Rosebank Farms and Sidi Limehouse have been a beloved part of the Kiawah River family since our community’s inception, and we are proud to provide a permanent space for their legacy to continue to flourish.”

Limehouse has farmed 30 acres at Kiawah River over the past 5 years, growing tomatoes, sweet potatoes, watermelons and flowers, among many other crops for Rosebank Farms. Operating for over 30 years, Rosebank Farms’ 75-acre farm is known throughout the region by residents and chefs as a unique farm offering consistency and quality, producing more than 50 crops.
Formerly known as Mullet Hall, Kiawah River embodies sea island traditions and history and has preserved and maintained 100 acres of working farmland. Kiawah River Farm prioritizes supporting the local agricultural community, including neighboring family farmers, The Goatery at Kiawah River, Three Gates Cattle, a pasture-raised cattle company, Storey Farms’ free-range chicken coop and actively maintained beehives.
