SC Ag + Art Tour
The planning for our second year of participation in the SC Ag + Art Tour is well under way. Along with Spartanburg and Union Counties, Newberry County is scheduled for the weekend of June 23 and 24. We will get to explore the farm sites West Ridge Farms, Carolina Pride Pastures, Do-Si-Jo's Corn Maze, Grow Newberry Farmers Market, Bowers Farm, and Rodgers Heirlooms. Visitors can also visit the sites of Enoree River Winery LLC, Lever Farms, Po Dunk Holler Artisans and Antiques, Carter and Holmes Orchids, and Mayer Dairy Farm. Most of these sites will feature local artisans showcasing their works. Hand-dyed textiles, handmade jewelry, up-cycled art, hand-crafted cheesecake, mixed media sculpture, paintings and photography, dance, music, and acting are some of what you will experience. Visitors will have the opportunity to see first-hand where their food comes from, watch artists in action, purchase something special, and learn more about rural life. Visit agandarttour.com and newberrycountychamber.com/ag-art-tour for all information.
To showcase some of the produce and meats grown right here in the county, we will hold a Farm to Table Dinner on June 21 at The PD Johnson Farm in Newberry. As you begin to see information on these events, take note of our logo. Newberry County's number one ranking in dairy, eggs, and timber can readily be seen in our design.
We are also taking vendor applications for the Grow Newberry Farmers Market. It will be held each Saturday in June and July from 9-11:30 a.m. in Memorial Park in downtown Newberry, with extended hours for the Ag + Art Tour.
