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.
