Out on Johns Island, Brownswood Nursery has a big growing operation along with experts on hand who can help you pick vegetable seed, plan your garden, and even stock it with chickens. Terre Stevens started raising animals, too, teaching families an important lesson in homesteading while expanding the reach of his business. They’ve got two types of rabbits — Holland Lops that make great pets and New Zealand rabbits that are meant for consumption. Brownswood also has fruit trees, vegetables, and herbs. Consultants will come to your yard and draw up plans or simply help you decide where that fruit orchard should go.
