Our Beginning

The Pick TN Conference began in 2016 to fulfill the need for more educational and networking opportunities for Tennessee farmers. Backed by the TN Department of Agriculture and UT’s Center for Profitable Agriculture, six statewide producer associations came together to plan the first conference that was held in Knoxville, including TN Agritourism Association, TN Organic Growers Association, TN Flower Growers Association, TN Farm Winegrowers Association, TN Fruit and Vegetable Association and the TN Farmers Market Association. Since that first conference, we have become a 501c3 and added two more groups to the conference: The TN Beekeepers Association and the TN Christmas Tree Growers Association. These eight groups meet monthly to plan the yearly conference that is now taking place in middle TN each February.
