Agriculture plays a huge role in our local economy and affects almost every business in our community.  Below you will find the 

2012 Census of Agriculture for Giles County.  Ag revenues generate over $45 million annually and economists estimate that amount

will regenerate itself 7 times, meaning Ag sales create over $315 million in products, jobs, services and tax revenues combined just 

in Giles County.   Giles County also  ranks 4th in the state in terms of ratio of Agricultural to non-Ag jobs and 4th in the state for land 

use ratio of farmland vs non-farmland acreage.
