YORK COUNTY, SC - The South Carolina Ag + Art Tour is currently seeking farms to participate in the nation's largest free farm tour to take place in June 2018. This free, self-guided tour is a great way for farms to showcase their operation and expand their exposure to locals and visitors alike.

Tour stops include family farms that produce food (produce or proteins), fiber or timber, or add value to traditional agricultural products (on-farm breweries, cideries, cheesemakers, etc.), or are other farm-based activities, such as farmer's markets & roadside stands.

A special feature of this tour is an art component, as local artisans will be assigned to participating farm sites during the tour weekends. These artisans will be showcasing (and selling) their work, creating a unique blended visitor experience of both agriculture and art!

The June 2018 tour will include 12 South Carolina counties with different counties participating each weekend in June (see schedule below). The tour will run Saturdays from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM and Sundays from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM each weekend. Farms are encouraged to participate both days of their assigned weekend.

Weekend Participating Counties

June 2 - 3 Chesterfield County, Darlington County, Florence County,

Horry County, Kershaw County

June 9 - 10 Chester County, Lancaster County, York County
