Arts & Ag began as a group of three women (pictured here from left to right: Antonia Meadors, Vanessa Davis and Nicole Lewis) took it upon themselves to create a back roads tour of farms and studios across the beautiful, rural Tennessee area of Hickman County. The success of the Arts & Ag Tour inspired the trio to continue their collaboration and to work together under the name, Arts & Ag.
The mission of Arts & Ag is to provide an open network for independently owned, craft-based and agrarian businesses and to promote those local businesses to the public. Furthermore, Arts & Ag will provide educational opportunities for the community about the arts, cottage industry and sustainable farming. Through these efforts we hope to raise awareness, encourage creativity, increase agri-tourism and commerce in Hickman County, and support the practice of small-scale, sustainable agriculture.
