Old-Fashioned Cotton Pickin’ Day

3 Comments By 

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. 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. 18, 2019, beginning at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served at noon.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by Oct. 14 with your lunch preference – options include ribeye steak sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich, chicken fingers or PB&J. Call Julieanna, Jenny or Sherry for directions or questions. Numbers are listed below:

Office: (931) 937-6373

Julieanna: (256) 527-4732

Jenny: (256) 658-4320

Sherry: (931) 205-1596

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, 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 🙂
