SC Agritourism Passport Series, Part 2 – Greenville County

We’re continuing with our SC Agritourism Passport Series, where we take you on a tour of all of the farms on the passport for our region. Read on for Part 2, Greenville County as you dive into the #winterwanderland season. We can’t wait for you to get out and explore the great outdoors and all that the Upcountry offers.

Participating in the Passport program is simple! Pick any farm as a starting point (we’ve listed them below in ABC order by city), and ask for a free passport book when you go. As you visit the farms, make sure to get the books stamped before leaving. The more stamps you collect, the more prizes you earn. Catch up here with Part 1 (Anderson County) to learn more about the prizes you can win and how to return the passport once completed.
