The Farm

Bio Way Farm is a certified organic farm with a focus on sustainable agriculture and permaculture design principles. Our 120 acres offer a mix of cultivated fields with row crops, preserved forests, a native plant nursery and a 5 acre lake. We sell through farmers markets, farm to table restaurant, CSA, an on farm stand & additionally offer farm tours/ nature walks. Production techniques include, cover cropping, flail mowing, silage tarping, drip irrigation, extremely limited plastic use and experimenting with no-till practices. 


We view Bio Way as not just a farm but as an actively managed landscape and nature preserve. Though we only cultivate 5 acres of 120, we treat the entire property as a complete landscape in which we work to maximize biological diversity and native integrity. Holistically and organically managing the landscape has provided us with a number of benefits including, reduced pest and disease pressure, additional habitat for native organisms, increased soil health and an overall balanced ecosystem.

Farm Stand

Closed for the Season

"Easily among the most sustainable & ecologically minded organic farmers in SC. Most farmers talk environment but mean food while Chris and his team are restoring wetlands, grassland, and forest habitat. Not many farmers of that mind & action - hats off to Chris - he’s a real inspiration."

-MTS Ecological

"A gorgeous hidden gem getaway! It's an organic agri-tourism farm, that heavily supports wildlife bio-diversity."


"Another wonderful visit at Bio Way! Excellent accommodations and home-cooked meals. Activities this summer included harvesting, planting, weeding and animal care. I also enjoyed going to the Farmer's Market each Saturday in downtown Greenville. I highly recommend a visit here!"
