McLeod Farms

Visit one of the largest peach orchards in South Carolina. Groups on a tour of the 650-acre farm get to visit the fields on a tractor drawn wagon, pick their own strawberries or pumpkins (depending on season), and learn about the history of the farm. Learn about farming practices, crop production, and some of the equipment on the farm. In the fall, your group can learn about other seasonal crops, including squash, sweet potatoes, and corn. During your stay be sure to explore the corn maze, and to try some homemade ice cream.
