UT Extension to conduct beginning and small farm expo

Published 11:37 am Tuesday, April 12, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The production on small acreage has been increasing over the past few years.  While a lot of information is out there, research and production information is constantly being updated and changed. The Profit & Production Expo, conducted by the University of Tennessee Extension, is designed for farmers with limited land resources who strive to maximize their production potential. The sessions in this expo will focus on maximizing land usage through increased knowledge in production and marketing practices for crops and livestock suitable on small acreage. Participants will be able to create a personalized track with five breakout sessions and a trade show.

Topics for the program will include: fruit production, vegetable production, livestock, poultry, beekeeping, pasture, taxes, marketing and much more. For more information on the sessions go to https://tiny.utk.edu/profit.

The program will be held at UT Brehm Animal Science Building, 2506 River Drive Knoxville, Tennessee 37996, on May 7, 2016.  The Expo will begin at 8:15 AM and conclude at 3:00 PM.
