  • Spring Valley Farms, 425 Abrams Rd, Lutts TN, 38471


Registration is closed

We are excited to kick off another great year of programs. In September, we will be hitting the road.  We gathered your feedback and are responding with a great Ag Tour opportunity.

In case you didn’t know, our very own John Bradley and his wife Debra operate a family farm – Spring Valley Farms (SVF) in Lutts, TN near Savannah.  On the farms, John & Debra produce beef cattle, honey and hay, all sold direct to consumers. A true gate to plate operation.  

Check out Spring Valley Farms on Facebook or visit their website

We will be heading down the road for a great tour of their operation.

Tour agenda:

  • 8:00 am - Depart from Showplace Arena next to AgriCenter on chartered bus
  • 10:30 am - Arrive John & Debra’s house,  enjoy refreshments on the front porch
  • 11:00 am - Enjoy a truly  homemade lunch complete with ½ pound burgers made from SVF beef and Debra’s homemade potato salad and dessert
  • 12:30 pm - Load the bus for a tour of the farms where John & Debra will share the history of their farms and discuss their current operations. Highlights include:
    • Cattle herds – How are they bred, raised, and sold direct to consumers
    • Debra’s bee operation – How are they cared for and how the honey is produced
    • General farm sites including old log barns
  • 2:30 pm - Depart for Memphis
