May 19, 2010 - Water Rights for Ag
Originally aired on RFD-TV Network on May 19, 2010
In this episode, Farm Bureau's Voices of Agriculture host Reggie Hall talks about one of South Carolina's attractions in the abundance of water. River, lakes and streams provide great scenery and recreation. It also serves as the life-blood to locally grown produce and livestock. Through this episode we talk about the importance of keeping this vital resource flowing through the state.
We also cover a marketing effort to promote Palmetto Sweet onions from South Carolina farms. We show a small group of South Carolina farmers, Farm Bureau representatives, government officials and others who introduced the sweet onion to the world in response to consumer demand.
For our Carolina Cooking segment we visit Waterscapes Restaurant in Myrtle Beach, SC. Here Chef James Clark appreciates and acquires locally grown food offering patrons the freshest ingredients in his recipes. See how he cooks up a highly unique lionfish.
Carrie Dalton joins in the ranks of our featured farmer segment Farmer Outstanding in the Field. We show you how Carrie works closely with her family on their farm as well as their nationally renowned restaurant, The Farmer's Shed.
We close the program with our Palmetto Portrait highlighting beautiful scenery from the Upstate of waterfalls, rivers and streams.
