South Carolina Ag Council Spring Ag Tour

Posted on April 28, 2011. Filed under: Ag Tours |

The South Carolina Agricultural Council is holding its Spring Agricultural Tour on Thursday, May 19, 2011.

The daylong tour of Aiken County will begin with a visit to the Aiken County Museum to learn about the area’s history of agriculture.  Following lunch in the museum, participants will be treated to a Trolley Tour of Aiken, a visit to Dogwood Stables, a popular training ground for Thoroughbred horses, the Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame, and Hopeland Gardens. Surrounded by a serpentine brick wall as well as ancient oaks and magnolias, Hopeland Gardens is 14-acres of camellias, azaleas, and other Southern horticultural favorites featuring a brick path over a goldfish pool that leads to a balcony overlooking the lower part of the park.

Participant check-in will be at 8:00 a.m. at the South Carolina Farm Bureau, 724 Knox Abbott Drive, Cayce, S.C. The bus will depart at 8:30 a.m. and return to the Farm Bureau building by 5:00 p.m.  Parking for the tour participants will be behind the Farm Bureau Building in the parking lot across the street.

Due to bus seating, the tour will be limited to 47 people, so PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. The deadline to register is Friday, May 13, 2011.  The tour is open to the public until the bus seating is filled with priority given to Council members and their guests.

Cost of the tour is $45 for members of the S.C. Agricultural Council and $55 for non-members which includes lunch, beverages, and snacks.

To reserve a space on the tour, send your name, phone number along with a check made payable to the South Carolina Agriculture Council and mail to: South Carolina Agriculture Council, P.O. Box 2683, Columbia, S.C. 29202.
