Andrew Fallaw is a fourth generation farmer that has spent much of his life working in the asparagus fields around the family farm run by his late father Gibson Fallaw, Sr. and mother Ethel. They grew the common variety of the day, Mary Washington. As an adult with two small children, Andrew saw an ad running in a produce catalog boasting of tremendous yields from a then unnamed hybrid strand of asparagus created by Jersey Asparagus Farms in collaboration with Rutgers University of New Jersey. Doubting the possibility of a product unlike anything he had seen in his lifetime, he ordered our first hybrid seeds (quite possibly the first to come to South Carolina) back in the late eighties. It was still a # and not a name but was everything it claimed to be in regards to the volume of product for harvest. Andrew has continued for the last two decades to farm the Jersey Strands (Jersey Giant, Jersey Knight, Jersey Gem, and others) alongside his older brother Thomas and his family and his late father. Our farm has approximately 20 acres of asparagus in production currently with new fields set out in addition to production ready fields for the coming years. Ours has always been a family affair with the majority of labor being provided by family members, friends and kids from our church. We hand cut every stalk, pack in nearly hundred year old antique Philadelphia bunchers and still cut our own wood and build our own hand made crates for wholesale distribution. Andrew has two sons, Andrew Shawn and Jeremy David and a wife Velma that continue to assist on various levels to this present day.
