Default What Were These Used For?

I'm in SC and see these everywhere in open fields.

Peach sheds. Used to have shade cloth on them.

Near old castle in Cowpens?

edit to add: Those fields used to not be empty. Used to be peach orchards. Got dozed in the late 90ís - about 2005 or so. A few in that area lasted longer.

For those who donít know, if I am thinking correctly, this is on the north side of I85 about 5 miles south of the the giant peach water tower. Possibly on the south side. Probably 3-4 dozen of these sheds around. Most were owned by one of 3 families. They have largely ceased operations due to SC peach production moving toward edgefield/Aiken.

I think SC produces more peaches than GA, too. Edgefield is definitely loaded with them.

This one is north of 85 just off 110. My guess was staging for peaches.
I'd heard that Cherokee County SC produces more peaches than the entire state of Georgia.

used to be the case, but not for quite some time. Probably ended that streak in the late 80ís. Maybe early 90ís. Spartanburg county and Cherokee county used to be the kings of peaches. Much of that ended when some of the bigger farms were redeveloped in Inman/greer (Gramblingís in particular). Once it was realized they grew better down toward Aiken with much less frost risk, and the families in northern Spartanburg County and Cherokee county got up in age, they went as well. Still a handful of smaller orchards around, but nowhere close to what it was.

I used to drive by the peach butt all the time when I was in school at Clemson. And all the billboards for peaches, chow-chow, other peach products.

Abbot Farms still has several of those stores. Sells mostly SC peaches in season. Some from the upstate, and fills in with some from around Aiken.

Good choice in schools. Graduated Clemson myself in 2004.

We were 2 years apart. I'm C/O 2006

McLeod Farms outside Hartsville still has a bunch of peaches (and other produce) as well, and a fantastic butcher shop/restaurant with the best steak salad I've ever had.
