Our Story

Over 4 generations and 80 years of farming, the Hyder's have cultivated what is known as Peach Country. In 1939 T. A. Hyder planted the first family peach orchard off of Laurens Rd in the Landrum area. He sold his crop to the surrounding farmers markets. He was able to expand and in 1955 added a packing house at 12 Depot St in Campobello. T. A. & his wife Hellon, along with their son Wayne packed & shipped peaches there until 1996. In 1988 Peach Country was established at the corner of Hwy 11 and Reid Rd in Campobello. This allowed Wayne & Linda Hyder along with the help of Linda's parents, Leo & Gertrude Powell, to sell directly to the community.  Moving forward to 1998 Peach Country was built at its current location at the intersection of Hwy 11 and New Cut Rd to maximize the increasing tourist traffic on Scenic SC Hwy 11. Wayne & Linda are still the acting proprietor's of the operation & both are still at Peach Country daily.  David is now in charge of crop management and daily operations on the farm.  David works solely on the farm & can answer any questions about the crops (if you can locate him, being he spends most of his time in the fields). Connie has become a large part of Peach Country's market management team along with Linda, Wayne & David. Connie's daughter, Aiden work's the register at Peach Country when she isn't at her full time job.  Ted is employed full time elsewhere, but still lends us a hand when needed.  Peach Country has added a variety of fruits and vegetables along the way. Peach Country now grow our own peaches, strawberries, apples, plums, figs, scuppernongs, blueberries, nectarines, corn, squash, pumpkins, and other seasonal vegetable crops with pride.
