The bane of CSAs — in most subscribers’ estimations — are the voluminous boxes of dark leafy greens which appear at the start and end of the season. But Legare Farms is wagering the prospect of collards and kale won’t scare off fans of the Johns Island farm.

For locavores who’d rather spend their Saturday morning enjoying dishes made with homegrown fruits, vegetables, eggs and pork than fussing with raw ingredients at the farmers market, Angel Oak this weekend is hosting a breakfast featuring Legare Farms products.
Breakfasters have their pick of crème brulee French toast with muscadines; eggs with pimento cheese grits and sausage and a country fried steak with sawmill gravy, collards, eggs and biscuits. All three plates cost $12, not including gratuity. For children under 10, a $6 Little Farmer’s plate is available. Breakfast includes a choice of juice, coffee or iced tea; for a $10 supplement, guests can drink all the mimosas they want.
Reserve a spot at Saturday’s 8:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. seating via Eventbrite, or call 556-7525.
