Walterboro ~ Carolina Gold with Rollen CHalmers

Event Details

Join us as we learn of Rollen’s ancestral relationship with rice and how it’s come full circle, the preservation and research of heritage grains, and the creation of Rollen’s RAW Grains
Marion “Rollen” Chalmers, known to most as Rollen, grew up in Hardeeville, S.C., and is the owner and operator of Rollen’s RAW Grain.
His passion for farming inspired him to perfect the skill of growing heritage rice and other heritage crops. Rollen was given the opportunity to start growing Carolina Gold Rice and Charleston Gold Rice at Turnbridge in Hardeeville, S.C. Turnbridge has proven to have what it takes for rice to thrive. In addition to growing heritage rice at Turnbridge, Rollen grew Carolina Gold Rice on Daufuskie Island, S.C. It was the first time rice had been grown there in over 100 years.
