If you’d like to get hands-on by picking your favorite fruits and veggies this spring, plan a day trip or a weekend away to these agritourism destinations in the Olde English District:

  • Cotton Hills Farm and Market | 2575 Lowrys Hwy, Chester (~1 hour 30 minutes from Greenville) | This family-owned farm offers u-pick strawberries April-June with the chance to pick your own peaches, tomatoes, flowers, sweet corn, okra, and more in June through the end of summer. Head back in the fall for pumpkins and collards during the winter months.
  • Bush-N-Vine Farm | 1650 Filbert Hwy, York (~1 hour 16 minutes from Greenville) | What started as a peach farm has branched into much more. Guests can pick their own strawberries, blueberries, peaches, blackberries, sunflowers, and pumpkins, all depending on the season. Pro tip: Check out the Farm Cafe before you leave for fresh donuts, ice cream, slushies, hot dogs + more.
  • McLeod Farms | 29247 Hwy 151, McBee | (~2 hours 30 minutes from Greenville) | Since 1916, this farm has been growing delicious peaches and other produce.
