Making It Grow Extra: Southern Heritage Crops

Making It Grow Minute Extra logo

Southern Heritage Crops present a unique opportunity for entrepreneurial farmers to grow and market high value niche products valued by households, restaurants and other markets for their authentic and historical attributes centered on taste and nutritional values.

Dave Lamie of Clemson's Agri-Business team talks with Amanda McNulty about these valuable crops.

Amanda McNulty is a Clemson University Extension Horticulture agent and the host of South Carolina ETV’s Making It Grow! gardening program. She studied horticulture at Clemson University as a non-traditional student. “I’m so fortunate that my early attempts at getting a degree got side tracked as I’m a lot better at getting dirty in the garden than practicing diplomacy!” McNulty also studied at South Carolina State University and earned a graduate degree in teaching there.
