For many, Thompson Farm and Nursery plays host to birthday parties, special events and even the most important day of their lives — the day of their wedding. Bucksville Hall, one of Thompson Farm and Nursery's event venues, offers a range of unique event and bridal packages. The twinkle-lit wood and majestic oaks deliver a rustic elegance that is often imitated but rarely achieved by others. For the Thompsons, entering the world of weddings is not only a chance to offer a truly unique space to a loving couple, but it's also an entry into a lucrative industry. While offering yet another creative source of business for the farm, serving as an event venue ties back to a guiding principle of the farm’s operation that's rung true for over 171 years: Create authentic products and meaningful experiences for families to share. When guests aren't enjoying a party or touring the old barn, they might take part in a more seasonal activity such as the Buck Wild Rodeo, Easter Egg Hunt, Breakfast with Santa, hayrides, and much, much more. From providing fresh food, to hosting special events, to educating local schoolchildren, the Thompson family has contributed to the legacy and longevity of South Carolina culture for decades. Most community events at Thompson Farm and Nursery are open to the public, while tours and private events are by appointment only. For a full list of events and to set up your escape to the quieter side of the coast, visit or call 843-236-1400. “The grounds at Thompson Farm are an absolutely beautiful setting for a wedding. And the elegantly lit and spacious barn is a great spot for receptions and parties. I was very impressed.” — Nick M., who attended a friend’s wedding at the farm in the fall of 2016
