Land and farms in Darlington County offer great opportunities for buyers seeking to invest in agriculture, manufacturing, development, tourism and outdoor sports. Located in the Pee Dee region of the state, the county is comprised of 567 square miles, including 177,000 acres devoted to farmland used to produce crops such as soy beans, wheat, corn and cotton as well as poultry and eggs. Another major employment sector is manufacturing and utilities with Sonoco being the largest employer. Progress Energy and Georgia Pacific are just two of the other large corporations in the county. And the area boasts outdoor recreation that rivals much larger areas. The 46,000 acres of land and water in the Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge draws nature-lovers from near and far. Racing enthusiasts flock to the Darlington Raceway for NASCAR races including the annual NASCAR Southern 500. Hunters and fishermen make the trek to hunt bear, deer, feral hogs and quail, and fishermen fill up their strings with stocked and wild striped bass, bluegill and rainbow, brook and brown trout. Low property taxes – 43 cents per $100 evaluation – make this an exceptional place to invest. Darlington School District provides K-12 education, and Coker University is located in Hartsville.
