SC grower sweet on citrus

 

Anthony Melton: Stanley Mckenzie is the only commercial citrus grower in the state, and I have helped him to get some national attention by going to magazines such as the New York Times, and the Carolina Virginia Farmer and all across the country to get attention to his citrus grove here in South Carolina, where he can increase his customer base nationwide.

Stanley Mckenzie: Tony has helped me a tremendous amount with the media exposure that he has given me. As far as getting the word out that there is a citrus grove in South Carolina; that we can grow citrus in South Carolina. I get people calling me from all over the United States and a lot of them want to order trees; and especially people from the South want to try their hand at growing citrus. So, it has just been a tremendous help to my business and it has just helped me out in all sorts of ways.
