Arts & Ag

Totty's Bend goatsHickman County, Tennessee OUGHT to be one of those sleepy little places that withers away in obscurity — no WalMart, no mall, no Starbucks.

But the spirit of this community is so strong and vital, it just can’t help thriving. As proof, I give you the annual Arts & Ag Farm Tour. A few years ago, three women in the community had a bright idea, which grew and grew and grew. And now every spring, farms and businesses in the county open up to the public.

Produce, crafts, music, wine, you name it — somewhere in Minnie Pearl’s old stomping grounds, you can find it.

It seems like magic; really, it’s just the inevitable outcome of good people working together to build better lives for everyone.
