What We Do
Our staff has expertise in a variety of subject matter areas. The office has a wealth of research-based publications, addressing virtually any issue related to the home or farm. So whether you know the UT Extension as the County Agents Office, the 4-H office or the Home Agent’s office, be assured that the staff is available to help answer your questions or direct you to the correct source. Our organization has a rich tradition of meeting the needs of the rural community. Additionally, our role continues to expand in order to meet the challenges facing a more urban audience. All of the services and many of the programs offered by Extension are free to county residents. UT Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.
