In Greater Lexington, town and country come together in a most peaceable way. Spend a day with us and you’ll travel through fields of greens—we’re “The Collard Capital of the World”—as well as small towns that percolate with a Mayberry sensibility. But don’t assume we’re in a time warp. Our farmers are running sophisticated operations and international manufacturers have chosen Lexington County for their North American headquarters. From our 18th Century German roots we have branched into a 21st Century global marketplace. Look for people from all over the world working in various professions, bringing with them their traditions and foodways. We’ve become more than South Carolina’s favorite place for mustard-based barbeque, though of course we still have it, and it is goooood.
