Farmer Steven Walter

Walters Farm is a fitting start to the Fresh at the Farm Dinner series as Chef Thompson and Stephen Walters, proprietor of Walters Farm, have been friends since childhood. Chef Thompson jokingly refers to Steven as “his personal farmer”. Steven Walters personally grows and harvests everything on his 5-acre farm and then makes the 45-minute drive to deliver it to Chef Thompson. Both are excited about allowing guests to dine on ingredients right where they are produced, fortifying the connection between farm and food.

Charleston Culinary Tours combine the best of Charleston history, cocktails and food with unique tours that highlight the Lowcountry. Each Charleston Culinary Tour visits several different restaurants, bars or the Farmer’s Market to combine elements of a historical tour with a culinary adventure. The food and drinks on the tours are chosen by various restaurant and bar partners and feature an array of eclectic dishes and concoctions that provide insight into Charleston’s cuisine and cocktail scene. On each tour, guests will not only have an opportunity to sample some of the Lowcountry’s finest offerings, but also to meet the owners, chefs and mixologists behind Charleston’s impressive culinary and bar innovations.
