A message from the President:

Dear Members,
It was exciting to be able to have our 42nd annual conference this year! The members that were able to attend enjoyed visiting with old friends while making new ones.
We had great topics presented by experts in their respective fields. We also had Rep. Phil King speak with us via Zoom while he was in Austin for the Governor's special session.
While we are optimistic that we are nearing the end of these unusual times, TCTGA members have worked hard to protect their customers and employees at their farms. This season promises to be busy with families eager to enjoy our farms family friendly activities!
I wish everyone a safe and successful season.
Bettye Haynie
