Crockett County

UTIA Logo large version

Crockett County is comprised of 267 square miles in the center of West Tennessee. It is “the county that almost wasn’t.” Six times between 1832 and 1872, efforts were made to form a new county from portions of Dyer, Haywood, Gibson and Madison counties.

Settlers had trouble crossing the Forked Deer River to reach their county seats, so Crockett County was finally created, with Alamo as the county seat.

Crockett County is the second largest producer of cotton in Tennessee. Normally, between 75,000 and 83,000 acres of cotton is grown each year. Other crops grown include soybeans, corn, grain sorghum, wheat and strawberries along with beef cattle.

Our office is open to the public with limited access.

For the safety of our clients and staff, the office door is open with limited entry. A reduced staff will be in the office each day. Please call for an appointment. We request that you follow CDC guidelines, including social distancing and wearing a mask, to protest our personnel and the public when visiting our office. Please do not enter the office if you are sick. We are not having face to face programming at this time.

Extension staff are working and are available by phone or email. We encourage you to continue to contact us for educational information and assistance just as you always have.
