Born in 2014 in Jacksonville, FL, Congaree and Penn began as a tiny rice farm. Since then, they've grown from 4 acres of rice paddies into a thriving farm of orchards and animals. Congaree and Penn boasts the largest (and youngest) Mayhaw orchard in the world, after planting over 2000 trees throughout the past few years. Native to the South, this fruit bearing tree has inspired them to seek out and plant other native and hearty southern fruit bearing species on the farm.
In 2016, Congaree and Penn began juicing seasonal fruit from local farms to produce shrubs, a nod to a Colonial era pastime. As they expand their orchard, pressing and milling operations, Congaree and Penn continues to innovate and introduce new produce and products.
