State Department of Agriculture Program: Tennessee
State Department of Agriculture of Tennessee
The Tennessee Department of Agriculture promotes local produce and products and ensures safe and dependable food and fiber for all while conserving our natural resources. Farming and forestry not only preserve a time-honored way of life, but they also fuel the state’s economy. Agricultural production generates more than $2.8 billion annually in farm cash receipts and nearly $300 million generated by timber sales.
