Farm expo expected to draw thousands

The South Carolina AgriBiz and Farm Expo is taking place January 16, 17 and 18 at the Florence Civic Center.

It's the largest expo of its kind in South Carolina.

It's designed to incorporate farming's deep traditional roots along with today's new innovations.

The Expo showcases farming equipment and provides educational opportunities for those interested in the industry.

"A lot of different products. A lot of different farm equipment in the back so it's a real good exhibit all around," said Ed Young, SC Heritage Farmer of the Year.

There will be seminars and symposiums on economic development and overall farming in the Palmetto State.

Financial experts will also be on hand to talk with you about farming loans.

Admission is $5 at the door and parking is free.
