Welcome to Paradise Acres Farm! We are a family owned farm located in Elgin, SC.

Many people with chicken egg allergies can eat duck eggs!
We began our journey in the spring of 2010 with a dream to have beautiful orchards that produced naturally grown fruits and berries free from pesticides and harmful products. We had a few fruit trees to start, but quickly found ourselves planting tree after tree after shrub until we had blossomed to over 170 fruit trees and bushes of all varieties. Quickly to follow the orchards where rows of unruly vegetable plants.
We soon realized that the produce we were growing was not reaching maturity because of bugs, pests, deer, birds, and disease! So, after some brainstorming, we decided that we would need some help to remain all natural and produce fruit at the same time. Enter the chickens (insert gasp here!) …….
Here on the farm, we raise free-range chickens, turkeys, ducks, and guineas who are lovingly and sometimes enthusiastically guarded by our dogs Angel & Trixie and our cat Bashful. We allow our chickens and friends to range our 20 acres as they wish. They are in charge of all bugs and they are doing a fine job. Unfortunately, the chickens love fruit and vegetables, and they are quite proficient at eating all that we manage to grow.
We’ll continue to tackle the balance between nature, food, and chickens down here on the farm. In the meantime, if you visit us, you’ll see our chickens running among the orchards – baron of all fruit, you might notice our rows of beautiful green vegetable plants – minus the vegetables, and you could stroll around the berry bushes (you guessed it) sans berries!
