Local Food LogoOver the past year, the Northwest Tennessee Entrepreneur Center (NTEC) started the Local Food Network spearheading the first edition of the Weakley County Local Food Guide with 2,500 copies distributed throughout the area. The guide educates consumers on the benefits of fresh, affordable, and locally grown foods while showcasing area farmers markets, farmers and agri-businesses by product, and locally owned plant vendors in order to support those on a journey to reconnect with their food.

NTEC would like to expand the guide to include agri-businesses from Weakley, Carroll, Henry and Obion Counties. The goal is to make this a regional document for our 9-county region in Northwestern TN.

The NWTN Local Food Guide will highlight area farmers markets, family farms, CSA’s, u-pick farms, agri-tourism, animal goods, artisan foods, beekeepers, locally owned plant vendors and resources.
