Welcome to Colleton County

Clemson Extension employs Extension Agents who work closely with state extension specialists and researchers located on campus and at the various research and education centers located across the state. Your local Extension Agents provide expertise in Agronomic Crops, Economic & Community Development, Food Safety & Nutrition, 4-H, Horticulture, Livestock & Forages, and Natural Resources.

Unique to the Colleton Office is Eat Smart Move More Colleton County (ESMMCC), part of the statewide Eat Smart Move More South Carolina initiative to fight childhood obesity. This pilot program is being funded through ESMMSC with funding from Blue Cross/Blue Shield. For more information on ESMMCC go to our county Programs Page and click on Food Safety and Nutrition.

Colleton Kitchen Incubator Survey

A kitchen incubator is a place where farmers, caterers, gourmet food producers, and others interested in the production of food items have access to a facility to prepare food products at a reduced cost. The facility is rented at an affordable rate and provides a licensed and fully equipped kitchen that will provide the equipment necessary for interested parties to prepare, package, store, and label their products. Further, the facility will provide business services, training (financial, marketing, product development), and mentoring services  to give the food entrepreneur every opportunity for success in their venture.

Colleton County is working to revitalize a building in downtown Walterboro to help serve the needs of their citizens and create a kitchen incubator. This survey is designed to assess your interest in using the kitchen incubator in Walterboro and to determine your specific needs in food processing.
