As a department in UT Extension, the Center for Profitable Agriculture provides educational programming and technical assistance to Tennessee farmers interested in a value-added enterprise to improve farm income. Evaluating the costs of starting a new enterprise, navigating regulatory issues and identifying a potential market are some of the many challenges farmers may face when considering a value-added enterprise.
Specialists at the Center may be able to help in the evaluation and development process through:
1. Individual enterprise analysis
2. Educational workshops and conferences
3. Educational publications and planning tools
The Center is a partnership between UT Extension and the Tennessee Farm Bureau and works cooperatively with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
