Agritourism
Glimpse Tennessee’s wholesome country life, taste honest-to-goodness farm freshness and savor the organic nature of our farming culture.
#

From the mountains of East Tennessee to the Mississippi Delta of West Tennessee, our state serves up glorious scenery and friendly, hardworking farm country for you to visit.

About one-half farmland, Tennessee became the first state to put its agricultural department on a real farm, Ellington Agricultural Center in Nashville.

Tennessee sets the bar high for farm-to-table cuisine. Sample award-winning wines from Tennessee vineyards. Gather fresh produce at our farmers markets, and pick your own sweet berries. Indulge in farm-raised meats. Pull up a chair, and dive into a traditional Southern home-cooked meal at Museum of Appalachia—a Smithsonian-affiliated pioneer village—and listen to sweet dulcimer music.

Enjoy our wildflowers, gardens and arboreta. Say “I do,” and create a special wedding day in Tennessee. Our fall festivals are awash with colorful corn mazes, pumpkins and hayrides. Savor cider while you mull over firs and pines at our Christmas tree farms. Marvel at the creativity of artisans in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community.
