Come Have Adventures
in Agriculture


The only agriculture-related free event in
Rutherford County!

Join Us, Date Pending


Adventures in Agriculture is FREE to the public and full of family-friendly fun! This annual event, hosted by members and partners of the Rutherford County Agriculture Community, features many hands-on activities to teach families about agriculture’s impact on our everyday lives. Our goal is to educate the community about where their food comes from, what farmers do, and how even families that don’t live on a farm can have agricultural adventures at home!

Honoring Rutherford County’s Agricultural Traditions

At one time, you could visit the county fair to learn about your local agricultural community. Rutherford County no longer has a fair, so for over 10 years, Adventures in Agriculture has been the only agriculture-related free event in the county. We are proud to continue the American tradition of community outreach through this annual event.
