Welcome TAEP Applicants:

The Tennessee Ag Enhancement Program is an excellent opportunity to take your farm operation to the next level!  For many years we have served TN producers as they make decisions about how to best utilize their Ag Enhancement funds.

Our products are not regularly available in your local stores, but we are happy to work with your local store to serve you!

Below we have listed those TAEP items we can supply to approved applicants.  Links to our product pages are included.
