Councilman Harry Wimberly of Orangeburg County in South Carolina announced that his county is creating development incentives to encourage new agribusiness investment.

The idea began back in December, 2015 when the S.C. Department of Agriculture asked Wimberly if his county could support such incentives.

Winberly said he always gets behind any initiative which supports agribusiness coming into and growing in Orangeburg County.

“Anytime we can bring new industry into Orangeburg County is a plus,” he said. “I am glad they entertained us first before any other county.”

At the beginning of May the county became the first in the state to say yes to a resolution backing incentives to grow agribusiness.

Any new businesses entering the county will be joining those who are already present and flourishing, such as: Cactus Farms, Dempsey Wood Products, Cox Industries, Bimbo Bakeries, Carolina Fresh Farms, Orangeburg Pecan, Mars Petcare, Lee’s Sausage and Super-Sod.
