AS a SCAA member, you will receive a monthly e-newsletter with helpful marketing tips for members only. Your farm is also eligible to participate in the SCAA passport program.
O = ONLINE
Your farm is listed FIRST in alphabetical listing along with a picture and/or logo on the agritourism page on the SCDA website with capability to search farms by county and/or activity. Add your own events on our agritourism calendar. Your farm events can be shared on the Agritourism Facebook page with over 5,000 followers.

SCAA membership directories, rack cards, and other promotional materials are available at SC Visitor centers as well as at events around the state.
N = NETWORKING
You have access to other agritourism farmers to learn about new things that can be implemented on your farm to benefit you! We hold regional Summer Spotlight meetings and a yearly conference with farm tours. Members can network, ask questions, and get advice in our private Facebook group.
