WE SAVED THE FARM!
We are pleased to announce that we have protected Thornhill Farms...forever. We are very thankful for the funding we received from the Charleston County Greenbelt Program and the South Carolina Conservation Bank. Thornhill Farms is a beautiful 94-acre piece of farmland just north of McClellanville on Highway 17.
By preserving Thornhill Farms as a working and teaching farm, local farmers will have new opportunities to learn how to make their farms profitable and sustainable. When farms are profitable and farming is valued, it decreases the threat of losing other farms to incompatible development. Read more about this project...
