Mushrooms at the Abbey

Shuttle Pick-up at CHSWFF Excursion Hub

We’re transporting you to an area that has been known as Mepkin for centuries. Now this estate, peppered with stunning live oaks and situated alongside the Cooper River, is home to a monastery rooted in history and farming traditions. Joined by Abbot Stan, Mepkin Abbey is offering an exclusive opportunity to tour the mushroom farm, which is not open to the public and learn about the oyster + shiitake mushrooms that flourish at the abbey. To round out your afternoon, you will hear the monks’ songful prayer and partake in a picnic lunch along the Cooper River in Luce Garden.
