South Carolina Farm Fun!


Holiday Fun at South Carolina Farms!

Agriculture is a vital part of our state’s economy and impacts every citizen. Agritourism is the agriculture-based sustainable activities and attractions that bring people to farms, ranches or other agricultural settings.

The SC Agritourism Association has created a Passport program for farms in 2016. Visit the participating farms and collect stamps to win Certified South Carolina items!

Before visiting a farm, call ahead to make sure they’ll be open and have the produce or products you’re looking for.
