Your family can conquer a corn maze, choose the perfect carving pumpkin, or create your own floral bouquet at Tennessee agritourism farms. There is something fun for family members of all ages to experience this fall while learning about Tennessee farming.
Tennessee farmers who welcome guests are continually finding innovative ways to provide family fun. Nearly 50 members of the Tennessee Agritourism Association traveled to Maryland and Pennsylvania this summer for an information and networking tour of agri-tourism operations. The visit provided insight and activities that farmers can implement here at home.

We try to add two to three new experiences each season so that there is always a reason to come back to the farm. “
