A Sweet and Savory Gift for Your Valentine.

Chocolate

Our chocolatiers Mark Gray and David Vagasky have over 30 years in perfecting their chocolate making techniques. Their local business, Cocao’s Artisan Chocolates are hand crafted in Charleston, SC.

Your chocolate selection is one of our all time favorites, End of the Day Bark.

Cacao's End of the Day Bark is simply outrageous and layered with complex textures and flavors.

Made with milk or dark chocolate and layered with roasted pecans and almonds, roasted sesame seeds, toasted coconut, French croquant, and Maldon Sea Salt.

Honey

This season’s honey harvest comes to you from our diligent girls bringing in nectar and pollen, then transforming it into liquid sunshine right here on Johns Island, SC.

Our beekeeper, Jim Martin has been “managing” bees for over five years and recognizes the intricate web of activity in the hive necessary to bring you this sweet sample.

Veggies

Your delivered farm shares will include 3-4 veggies and 1-2 herbs. Compost in My Shoe’s farm is located in the heart of Johns Island. Sandy soil and compost are the start for producing some of the most beautifully, nutritious produce in your local area.

Your Valentine will be contacted via email 2 weeks before we start deliveries with instructions on how to set up the delivery.  We expect the season to begin early-mid-March depending on Mother Nature and the growing conditions at the farm.

At that time they will choose a pick up location based on a list we will provide. there will be drop off locations in Mt. Pleasant, James Island, Johns Island and The Peninsula. All other pertinent information will be provided at that time.
