The Moore family outside of Dresden will host Tennessee Agriculture Commissioner Julius Johnson, as well as area producers, in a listening session at their farm Thursday evening.
The session is a part of a series of tours Johnson and members of his staff initiated earlier this month to hear stakeholder concerns about current issues relating to agriculture.
“We want to be available to our producers, landowners and agribusinesses to hear their concerns and to get their input on how to enhance our rural communities and economy,” Johnson said.
“This is also about ongoing efforts to look at how we, as an agency, can provide better service and be more responsive to challenges and opportunities,” the ag commissioner added.
Janice and Kenneth Moore are inviting everyone with an interest in agriculture to their farm, located at 2887 Paris Hwy. 54, Dresden Thursday at 7 p.m. to meet Johnson and participate in the listening session.
Director of Public Affairs Tom Womack and TAEP administrator Justin Bryant will also be on hand.
Light refreshments will be served.
