Agritourism has been biuling for years in the Palmetto state, now if people are interested in visiting a farm, its been made even easier.
“It’s a project we’ve been working on for years. To try to get better signage for folks that have an agritourism business. Now with a cooperative effort between the Dept of Ag and PRT, and the Dept of transportation, we have a program called TODS – Tourism Oriented Direction Signage. Its designed to help people find where they want to go a little easier. It’s a process to go through to get everyone signed up with their information. We want to try to get this up and going with the signs by next spring.
The signs will go up on secondary roads, so once a person finds the general area, the signs will get them there.
If a farm is interested in having a TODS sign directing them to their location there is an application process and there is a pre-approval deadline of Oct 30th. The forms can be found on www.agriculture.sc.gov . The Dept of Transportation will then fabricate and install the signs.”
