Farmland Legacy Resources

Farmland Legacy Logo

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is dedicated to preserving the state’s farmland while keeping farms profitable. Tennessee farms, including forestry, generate more than $3.1 billion annually, ranking agriculture one of the top industries in the state. With more than 79,000 farms accounting for more than 43 percent of the state’s total land area, it is important to continue supporting this industry. Every year, Tennessee loses approximately 60,000 acres of farmland. TDA is working with partner organizations to give landowners the tools to continue their legacy for other generations to work and enjoy.
