Welcome to 2018!

A new year is a time of reflection on the year past and renewel for the days ahead. Many of us will make resolutions to work out more, eat healthier, support others, and spend more time with family. If these are some of your resolutions, think about how agriculture can help you reach your goals in 2018.

Want to eat healthier? Incorporate more fruits and veggies from your local farm or farmers market. Want to get more exercise? Talk a hike through one of our parks or botanical gardens. Family time? Enjoy some farm-based agritourism activities or consider taking your next family portraits at a farm. Care about supporting your local economy? Support your local farms through everyday purchases.

So make your 2018 new year’s resolutions today and share how agriculture is making a difference in your life on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with #tnmagicmoments.

Tennessee Department of Agriculture's Samantha Jean sat down with Stephanie to learn more about "The Barn" at Allenbrooke Farms. Listen now.
