Palmettovores

Anyone can be one. It doesn't cost anything more than you already spend at the grocery store. And it's legal!

I'm talking being about Palmettovores, also called a locavore. A Palmettovore is someone in South Carolina that eats only SC grown and raised products. You can have peaches from Chesterfield County, strawberries from Marion County, blueberries and blackberries ... you can even get free-range chickens and beef from Darlington County. And these are a drop in the bucket - because South Carolina has it all!

So visit your local farmers market, look for the SC Grown label in your local grocery store. Even if you only do it one day a week, it will raise your awareness of all the wonderful and delicious offerings grown right here in our home state.

South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers had a op/ed on SCNow.com that was an inspiring testimony to become a Palmettovore.

ArborOne is pleased to promote this initiative, because we know our local farmers represent a vital part of the economy. Thank your local farmers and buy South Carolina -- Nothing's Fresher, Nothing's Finer than certified South Carolina grown products.
