2019 Ag+Art Tour of Kershaw County
South Carolina’s award-winning Ag + Art Tour returns to Kershaw County Saturday and Sunday June 8th and 9th. For the third year, visitors and residents alike will have the opportunity to explore local handmade and homegrown experiences at a variety of farms and agricultural-related venues throughout the county. According to tour organizers, many of the county’s traditional sites will once again participate including: Old McCaskill Farm in Rembert, Boykin Mill Farm in Boykin, Goat Daddy’s Farm in Elgin, Quite Content - urban garden farm in Camden, and the Kershaw County Farmers Market in Downtown Camden. Kershaw County’s Ag + Art Tour received the 2018 Olde English District Tourism Commission Attraction of the Year award. This year, event co-chairs are Jason Southers of Goat Daddy’s and Stephanie Tetterton of Quite Content, with both farms tallying more than 2,000 visitors during the weekend last year.
“Visitors love to learn what makes each farm special, whether interacting with animals or learning how seedlings grow from farm to table,” said Southers. “An extra special treat is the experience provided by the variety of artisans at each location who tell stories, paint pictures, make jewelry, sell homemade jams and jellies, honey, baked goods, provide music and dance, and demonstrate modern and vintage gardening techniques.”
The South Carolina Ag + Art Tour has been cultivating handmade and homegrown South Carolina experiences since 2012. The Ag + Art Tour is the nation’s largest free self-guided farm tour featuring local artisans and farmers markets in different counties each weekend in June. To date the tour has welcomed over 30,000 visitors statewide throughout the month of June.
