Right after the welcome to Johnston, South Carolina sign, you’ll see Thomas Produce, which is a small stand that is looked after by Fred Stribling, an Edgefield County native.
Thomas Produce has been in business for a little over 8 years and sells fresh produce grown in the Trenton, South Carolina area from peaches to plums.
Fred says that, even though it’s a small stand, he still gets plenty of business this time of year. “Everybody will tell you that we get people from all up the East Coast that stop here. This is the only place they buy peaches,” he said.
Fred says the peaches that are from Trenton and Johnston are the best in the world and peach farmers work on their crops year round to ensure the best peaches.
