Boone Hall Plantation

Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina

In 1743, the son of Major John Boone planted live oak trees, arranging them in two evenly spaced rows. This spectacular approach to his home symbolizes southern heritage and will take root in your memory for many years to come. It would take two centuries for the massive, moss-draped branches to meet overhead, forming today's natural corridor and a scene that NBC Daytime television says is "a must see stop on any trip to Charleston, S.C."

Boone Hall Plantation is also one of America's oldest working, living plantations. They have been continuously growing and producing crops for over three centuries. Once known for cotton and pecans, they are still actively producing strawberries, tomatoes, and pumpkins, as well as many other fruits and vegetables for their visitors to enjoy. The U-Pick fields are open in season. The agricultural arm of the plantation today is known as Boone Hall Farms.

Boone Hall Farms Market, located close by to the planation on Hwy. 17 North in Mt. Pleasant, is their main modern market which is open year round and carries their produce grown right on the farm in season. The market also features a market cafe with a diverse menu, fresh local seafood, a Lowcountry Butcher Shoppe, a wine alley, a flower and gift department, Boone Hall label jams, jellies, and sauces.
