There is no better way to see Tennessee agriculture and YF&R friends than at the “21st Annual Fall Agriculture Tour”. This year, the focus is on Middle Tennessee Agriculture including tours of cattle, tobacco, row crop and agritourism farms. South Central Growers horticulture operation and the Hale & Cotton Tobacco Warehouses will also be featured. Our Saturday evening awards dinner will be held at Honeysuckle Hill agritourism farm ensuring a great time for all.
