South Carolina’s Ag in the Classroom program is funded by a non-profit 501(c)(3) education foundation sponsored by South Carolina Farm Bureau Federation created to promote awareness and recognition of the importance of the sources of our food and fiber.
Agriculture and related agribusinesses are the number one industry in the United States, and the number one industry in South Carolina generating $34 billion annually and 200,000 jobs.
There are three components that form the structure of the Ag in the Classroom program:
County Farm Bureau members, including Women’s Committees, Young Farmer and Rancher Committees, County Boards and members-at-large contribute time and materials to support teacher participation and to encourage student appreciation of food and fiber sources.
