None of Bugby Plantation's current inhabitants can pinpoint the origins of the curious name, but the corner of Wadmalaw that greets the only bridge onto the island has seen its share of farmers. These days, Adair McKoy cultivates about 200 acres of vegetables and animal feed grains, including a healthy annual harvest of grape tomatoes. In the spring, visitors come out for the u-pick strawberry fields, sometimes getting to harvest cantaloupes, tomatoes, watermelons, and sweet corn as well. McKoy is a significant supplier of corn to the chicken farms in the Upstate, successfully combining a utility cash crop with the local flavor of a strawberry u-pick. —Stratton Lawrence
