Smartt returns to TFC board


1/6/2020

A familiar face has returned to represent Zone 3 on the Tennessee Farmers Cooperative board of directors.

George Smartt of McMinnville, a TFC director from 2006-14, was unanimously elected to a three-year term on the nine-member board during TFC’s 2019 annual meeting Dec. 2 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville.

Smartt replaces Johnny Brady of Riceville, who was not eligible for re-election.

“I’m flattered that the farmer members decided to re-elect me and look forward to the opportunities ahead,” said Smartt, a longtime member of Warren Farmers Cooperative whose 400-acre operation includes poultry, wine grapes, and beef cattle. “I enjoyed the eight years I previously spent on the board so much with some of the finest, easiest-to-get-along with people I’d ever been around. We made progressive moves such as creating Co-op Financial Solutions and partnering with WinField to form GreenPoint Ag. TFC is a great organization, and I’m excited about what the future holds.”

Smartt resides with his wife of 34 years, Tammy, on the McMinnville farm where he was raised and where his great-great-grandfather, William Cheek Smartt, created a homestead in 1804. The Smartts have four children — Alex, 31, Jac, 28, Madison, 23, and Will, 19.
