Indigo Farms is a family farm that extends six generations. Besides being a Century Farm it has some rather interesting history of its own. The Bellamy family has its roots in this area since John Bellamy settled in 1766. With relatives including Vaughts, Vereens and Gores our past is intertwined with much of the history in Horry and Brunswick counties.

    The Indigo Branch or Run ( stream ) has a history that also is intriguing. It is one of the shortest routes between the Waccamaw River and the Atlantic Ocean. Native Americans traveled waterways, like we travel highways today. The run was a pathway that enabled them to travel many miles down the river and get to this area only a very short distance from the ocean. The run moves water toward the Waccamaw River not into the ocean. With recent discoveries of Native American settlements at the beach it is evident that the run was a much traveled route.

  The name of the farm comes from the run. It is documented that indigo was one of the crops grown right in this area. After the decline of indigo production by the colonies, indigo was commonly grown for personal use.Local people used to grow it in the early 20th century. We grow indigo here on the farm.

    Agriculture is often seen as “food and fiber” and perceived as an industry or industries. That fits the modern mindset today. But the real value of agriculture is not in commodities but rather as perhaps the best place where the next generations can develop a world and life view that truly makes sense. For thousands of years farms have not only been a source for food but have given society and nations security, promoting family well being and a means of developing knowledge,skills and imagination to future generations. Today’s modern mindset is blind to this fact. This is something that Indigo Farms has worked to provide a healthy alternative that puts farming back in it’s role as not only a resource for food but helping people get a piece of the education the farm experience brings. As one local farmer commented when told farming is a hard life, “farming is hard work but it is a rich life.” Today young and old alike suffer from lives that are  not rich in the awe and wonder of an actual reality that transcends and expands the imagination. The future of healthy farms rests on an informed non- farming populace valuing and supporting their own local farms. 

   Some interesting facts about the family include;

James Samuel Bellamy had four sons ( Chap, Otha, Draughty, Ernest  ) whose farms were side by side. Three of the four married sisters from the Edge family in Tilly Swamp, Horry county.

Mary Thompkins Bellamy was born in a cabin on the farm built by descendants of Native Americans who frequented the river  swamps to hunt and fish.

Visit the store and find some great local and organic choices

  Today the farm is still run by Sam Bellamy with his wife, Sarah, and daughter Sallie. We hope the farm can remain for Sallie’s daughter.


A beautiful history for a beautiful farm.
