Tennessee is well known for its farm crops, with Warren County specifically famous for growing nursery stock. Grape production in our state has been steadily growing since the 1980s, with over 100 farmers raising grapes, with Tennessee wineries cropping up monthly. During the late 1800s, vineyards were quite popular in the state, but were cut short in 1919 when prohibition hit the area.
