Midlands Farmer Prepares for Eclipse Crowd

Up to a million people are expected to come to our state for the eclipse in just a few weeks... If you are still trying to figure out where you want to be a farm in Kershaw county might be just the place

Kershaw County, SC (WLTX)- A Midlands farm is getting prepared for possible crowds coming with the eclipse.

“Well we just thought it would be a nice place for people to just come just to watch the eclipse because we've got open pastures,” Kathy McCaskill with Old McCaskill’s Farm explained. “Plenty of room for people to park and bring your chair and your blanket and open up the other pasture and put you out there.”

McCaskill and her husband Lee are hosting Come Play in the Dark at Old McCaskills Farm on August 21.

Although Columbia is one of the best spots to experience the moon's shadow, McCaskill said folks will be able to enjoy the animals and avoid traffic.

“It just is a more relaxed and just fun to come out to the farm,” McCaskill said.

Viewing glasses will be available and of course, fresh farm food prepared by their daughter Ashley will be available. 

“The historical significance of it I think is the biggest thing of it all,” McCaskill said. “It is quite a historical event.”

There will be commemorative shirts and signs at the event. Space will be limited.
