About Us

Our Humble Mission

Patient Wait is a a long time dream of a Jersey Girl exiled in South Carolina.  

Along with her understanding husband/farm hand; they are building a sustainable farm and producing products that are good for you, and good for the environment.

Animal Welfare Approved

Patient Wait is proud to be certified Animal Welfare Approved -- regarded as the most trusted food label in North America.

Committed to Local

We appreciate all our fans...but we remain fiercely local when it comes to our products.  Holiday turkeys available for on-farm pick up as well as our pasture-raised livestock.  

We do not have an "on-line farm store".  Instead we prefer our customers getting to know us and old-fashioned human contact.  Imagine that?!

ONLY A FEW MORE AVAILABLE!  Serve a heritage turkey at your traditional holiday get-together.  Our Holiday Turkeys are available by pre-order only.  Deposits are taken beginning in June.  $20 will reserve your whole bird.  2018 turkeys will be $6.99 per pound.  Reserve the approx size you are interested in.

Heirloom Vegetables

When taste matters...heirloom veggies grown naturally can not be beat.  Beginning with the June Farm Tour -- we will have tomatoes, peppers (sweet and hot), summer squash, and much more available for purchase -- also ask about local produce stands that carry our vegetables, eggs and other farm products.
