Slide Background
Our Saturday Tour will be at the Caney Fork Farm. We will be meeting at 9:00 am at the conference lobby to depart to the farm. Attendees are encouraged to carpool.

Caney Fork Farm is located in the beautiful Hills of Carthage Tennessee. Our farm uses carbon farming practices to provide healthy, affordable food that prioritizes people and planet. You will hear a little history of the farm, how the vision of the farm brought it to where it is today. Caney Fork is a living laboratory, studying how planned grazing of dense livestock herds work in conjunction with crop, grassland and agroforestry ecology. We grow certified organic vegetables, grassfed beef, pasture raised chicken, pastured pork, grassfed lamb, and organic chestnuts. We have a CSA program bringing our farm to the table of Tennessee families. A tour of the farm will include the greenhouse, wash pack, vegetable fields of cover crop, livestock facilities, cattle and sheep on pasture/hay, and chestnut agroforestry.
