Heritage Fields Farm was established in the summer of 1999 when David Derrick was 14 years old. David started out with just two rows in his mother's garden, planting only tomatoes. After 11 years of continuous growth, David now plants more than 6 1/2 acres of vegetables with more than 30 different types of vegetables during all months of the year. Everything is picked fresh daily from the fields.
The goal of HFF is to provide fresh local produce at a reasonable price to the community. They farm using the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This practice is an approach to farming with the main goal being to greatly reduce the use of pesticides. They do this by crop rotation, use of beneficial insects, and the use of disease resistant cultivars. David started out with one small table in his parent's front yard, and now sells out of a free standing vegetable stand. The vegetable stand is open daily, and is located at 10350 Broad River Road in Irmo, South Carolina.
