Heritage & Culture
Agriculture was the driving force behind the settlement of Tennessee, a key element in its cultural heritage. Some family farms passed through generation, becoming Tennessee Century Farms--owned and farmed by the same family for 100 years or more. A generous dose of rural culture can be enjoyed by taking an agritourism vacation, staying in local lodging, such as farm B&Bs and guest ranches.
