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

Our goal is for consumers to be able to easily identify, find and buy South Carolina products. Public interest and perceptions, image and awareness, distribution, legislation, regulations all have an impact on the sustainability and growth of agribusiness. To tackle these issues, overcome obstacles and keep agriculture profitable, the South Carolina Department of Agriculture in cooperation with public and private partners has implemented the Certified South Carolina program.

What’s a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It gives a group or network of people access to fresh produce that’s grown by local farmers. CSA members pay in advance for a share of the crops that are produced. In turn, the farm or farms growing those crops deliver them to CSA members.

List of Products

Fresh on the Menu was established to improve local economies and increase the per capita income of rural South Carolinians. Part of the program includes restaurants that prepare menus that include at least 25% Certified SC Grown, in-season foods and products. Not only are local foods tastier and healthier, sourcing from local farmers helps minimize our carbon footprint.
