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 $3.5 billion annually in farm cash receipts and nearly $300 million generated by timber sales. The Department touches the lives of Tennesseans everyday through the food we eat, the fuel we pump, the clothes we wear, the wood products we use and the land we enjoy.
