August 5, 2022

UT Extension Smith County is proud to present the latest episode of Cultivating Communities. Join hosts Katie Martin and Chris Hicks as they travel the Upper Cumberland to introduce you to local farmers, families, and Extension agents.

In this episode, Chris and Katie meet up with Extension Agent Johnny Barnes in the home of our Cultivating Communities partner DTC Communications, DeKalb County, Tennessee.

Chris, Katie, and Johnny dive in to the local agritourism scene with visits to Grade A Goat Dairy Harmony Lane Farm & Creamery, where they got to cuddle with some cute baby goats and sample delicious goat’s milk products and Bert Driver Nursery, where much more than just nursery production is happening on the grounds!

Featured interviews are with Julie David, owner and Chief Goat Girl at Harmony Lane Farm & Creamery, and Bert Driver, owner of Bert Driver Nursery, The Burlap Room Beer Garden & Live Music, and Hemp Brothers.
