Consumer demand for locally produced foods and products continues to grow, creating opportunities for farmers who market directly to the public as well as to chefs and grocery stores. To help farmers prepare to meet the demand for local products, the University of Tennessee Center for Profitable Agriculture is offering two sets of workshops in March and April.
UT Extension provides a gateway to the University of Tennessee as the outreach unit of the Institute of Agriculture. With an office in every Tennessee county, UT Extension delivers educational programs and research-based information to citizens throughout the state. In cooperation with Tennessee State University, UT Extension works with farmers, families, youth and communities to improve lives by addressing problems and issues at the local, state and national levels.
