I recently had a bad accident that left me handicapped for a few months. While it’s not the best time of year to be in a boot in sunny South Carolina, I’ve made the best of it in a lot of ways.

While the area has evolved as tourism has thrived, it is still home to a number of outstanding farming operations that provide us with fantastic seasonal produce, meat products, eggs,…
