Purchasing meats directly from local farms is easy to do. With this year’s Fill Your Grill contest from Pick Tennessee, it might also be free.

Pick Tennessee Fill Your Grill Contest

Going on now and until May 15, 2016, Facebook users can enter to win $200 worth of local meats from a nearby farm. The contest comes courtesy of Pick Tennessee Products, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture program that connects farmers directly to consumers. The contest started April 15, 2016. A total of 12 winners will be randomly chosen at noon on Monday, May 16, 2016 and notified by Pick Tennessee Products.

This year’s contest is funded by the Tennessee “Ag Tag.” Fees generated by the cultural license plate support the Tennessee Agricultural Development Fund. All proceeds from the Ag Tag go back to Tennessee’s farm community, supporting programs for local farmers, farmers markets, and youth organizations like 4-H and FFA. The Tennessee Ag Tag celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Last year “Fill Your Grill” garnered a total of 4,504 entries completed from each of Tennessee’s 95 counties with more than 700 towns represented.

To enter, visit the Pick Tennessee Facebook page and click on the “Fill Your Grill” posting. Contestants must choose which farm they would visit to collect their meats and then submit that choice with their own contact information. Winners can choose what kinds of meats they want to purchase. Contestants simply need to be sure to choose the farm that offers what he or she wants, whether it’s beef, pork, lamb, goat, poultry—or some of everything.

You can also register at the Pick TN Products site by clicking here.

There is no cash prize. Entrants win the opportunity to go to a farm or local meats business and choose up to $200 of Tennessee meats. All funds will go directly to the farmer or business to reimburse them for their products.

More information about the contest is available on the “Fill Your Grill” contest pages. Follow Pick Tennessee on Facebook, Twitter, and on the Web. The Pick Tennessee Products Website,, also has a link to the contest on the home page.

One place I highly recommend is Martin Farm Beef for your local fresh beef and pork, based in Jefferson County, TN.

Press Release from The State of Tennessee in NASHVILLE. Recommendation of a place is my own doing. This is where I have bought fresh beef from before and highly recommend using them, Martin Farms.
