"Rescued from near extinction by Ted Chewning, Jimmy Red corn was already making waves in the culinary world when we opened our doors in 2013. Named for James Island just over the bridge from Charleston and heralded by Chef Sean Brock, Jimmy Red was a legendary moonshiner's corn that had dwindled down to a mere 2 cobs following the death of the last man known to grow it. His family gave the seeds to Ted who began the arduous process of bringing it back to life.  Through the efforts of folks like Ted, Glenn Roberts of Anson Mills, and Sean Brock, Jimmy Red corn seed reserves were slowly being rebuilt. In 2015, thanks to the diligence of Dr. David Shields of University of South Carolina, Jimmy Red corn was accepted as a new addition to the Slow Food Ark of Taste, an international catalog of endangered heritage foods."
