Lincoln County Cotton

Showing how agriculture works is one of the goals of an event held each fall in Flintville, Tennessee, during the Old-Fashioned Cotton Picking Day at D&J River Farms. It attracts between 100 and 150 people for lunch and a chance to pick cotton by hand. The media is invited as well.

This year’s date for the Old-Fashioned Cotton Picking Day is Oct. 5, 2018 beginning at 10 a.m.

This year it will be held at 155 N. Vanntown School Road, Flintville, TN 37335. Take Hwy. 275 to Vanntown and follow the signs directing you to the field. This is the back side of the farm headquarters.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by Sept. 28.  Call Julieanna, Sherry or Jenny for directions or questions. If you call the office, please leave a message for either Julieanna or Jenny. Numbers are listed below:

Office: 931-937-6373
Julieanna Cell: 256-527-4732
Sherry Home: 931-937-8973
Jenny Cell: 256-658-4320

Come enjoy reminiscing the old way of picking cotton, by hand and stay for lunch, but please bring a lawn chair (they will have some tables to sit at, but not enough to sit everyone!)

    Hi! I live out of town, is it possible to pay for cotton stems? I need about 300 for my wedding 🙂
