Life’s a Peach This Summer in South Carolina’s Old 96 District
This summer, we’re Feelin’ Peachy in the Old 96 District! Right now, the South is embracing the peach season. Did you know South Carolina is the 2nd largest state for peach production behind California? Yep, we like to say we’re the tastier peach state.
The Peach Capital of the World is right here in the Old 96 District’s Edgefield County. This region produces 60% of South Carolina’s peaches, with Titan Farms in Edgefield as the largest peach grower on the East Coast—they have over 6,200 acres of peaches in production. We’ve got a real passion for peaches.
Throughout the summer, this page will show you where to eat a peach and how you can enjoy the season. You can also follow our Instagram or the hashtag #FeelinPeachy96 . We welcome everyone to use the hashtag for their own peachy moments and share your experiences in the SC counties of Laurens, Greenwood, Edgefield, Abbeville, and McCormick!
We’ll have ongoing lists of ways to have fun and fill your summer with good things; you’ll find deals, tours, tastes and enticing reasons to visit at each of these stops.
