More information is available at the SC State Library (contact 800-922-7818 or 803-734-4611). Deaf and hard of hearing individuals should dial 711-734-4611.

  • Certified SC Grown

    The Certified South Carolina program is a new, exciting cooperative effort among producers, processors, wholesalers, retailers, and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) to brand and promote South Carolina grown and produced products.

    Our goal is for consumers to be able to easily identify, find, and buy South Carolina products. Look for the Certified South Carolina logo in your supermarket, roadside market, community, or state farmers market or wherever you shop and remember to Buy South Carolina because Nothing's Fresher. Nothing's Finer.
