The South Carolina Farm Aid Grant Program makes available $40 million dollars in relief funding to South Carolina farmers who suffered at least a 40% loss of an affected crop as a result of last October’s flooding.
We work together to improve the marketing and production quality of our fresh fruit, vegetable and specialty crops grown here in the state.
Our voice is influential local, state and federal legislation on matters affecting our industry. Our support helped influence legislation such as the Farm Bill, Farm Aid, water resource issues and labor regulations.
Food safety experts provide classes from Clemson University Department of Food Science, Clemson Extension Service, SCDHEC, SC Farm Bureau and more.
The SCSCGA offers mini-grants to its members for various projects including on-farm production, marketing, transportation and management. To apply, the producer must be a member of SCSCGA.
The Association offers education for members through regional conferences, regional food safety workshops and regional grower meetings.
Our extensive list of resources is available to all members to aid in any need that arises. Some of our partners have joined together to offer our members special discounts and deals. Together, we are collaborating to improve the way we live and work through agriculture.
