From our family legacy to your new, memorable occasions,
Bishop Farm is both history preserved and history in the making.
In 1934-35, Claude Bishop had a dream of building the best peach packing facility in Spartanburg County and that’s what he did.
Bishop's Barn packed the first
peaches that were packed in
boxes in the mid 40s, Prior to
that all the peaches were
packed in baskets.
In the early 1950s the Bishops
diversified their farming and the
packing business was closed.
It has had many other purposes
since, but nothing to compare
with the early days of the hustle
and bustle of peaches rolling in
from the farms and out again to
be shipped all over the country,
some by trucks and some by rail.
Thanks to the determination of Claude Bishop, a 3rd generation of Bishop Family now has a great facility and property to host your events.
Today we aim to give you the
best rustic event experience
possible and we will continue to
make improvements while
retaining the charm of the past.
