Each year Briggs Elementary School hosts the ‘Taste of Briggs’ and the proceeds help fund much needed programs at the school. Last year we were excited about combining this fun family friendly event with the debut of our new farm. We are excited about our second annual themed event ‘Farm to School’.
Last year the festivities were presented by HopeHealth Pediatrics and included seven tents with various foods for sampling made from produce from SC farmers, including boiled peanuts from McCall Farms, rice and cowpeas from Carolina Plantation rice, chicken wings from Maypop Farm, collards, strawberries and smoothies. In addition to the interactive booths with Clemson Extension, 4H Club, Pee Dee Land Trust and the USDA, kids of all ages were able to enjoy the combine simulator, cow milking station, dancing and chorus performances, jump castles, and more!
