About Us

Meet Our Staff

Haha, YES, it IS family, complete with my mom, the infamous “Ning Ning” and my deceased father (see that little ray of sunshine on the left?) who made it his life’s anthem to support small, local businesses.  Mom is the chief instigator whose 87 years is heavily influenced by SC farm life, fine arts, higher education, and enough God-given gumption and grit to move mountains.   My sister whose endless and beautiful creativity has always been my inspiration.  She is a wonderful sounding board whose honest and kind integrity keeps me in line.  My children who graciously do anything I ask, including “close your eyes and taste this” to “haul this box to the minivan.”  And last but not least, my husband who rolls with any and every crazy idea I have had for the past 25 years.  His patience, wit, and boundless creativity keeps us all neatly “wrapped.”  So thank the staff, uh, family, for giving Carolinas Home Grown its daily inspiration and operation a joy and a gift!

With much love and grace to you and your loved ones, Joycelyn
