Need a place to hold your next event? Rutherford County is home to The Grove at Williamson Family Farm, a beautiful venue available to host everything from weddings and baby showers to birthday parties, corporate events and retirement parties. Situated on more than 200 acres of farmland, the event center provides a serene setting that features rustic characteristics blended with modern amenities. Crops grown on the farm are often incorporated into the foods served at private functions, and the family who owns the property is investing $4 million over the next few years to further modernize the estate.

Making Connections

If you’re looking to make connections with other business professionals, the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce has a way. The chamber hosts Round About Rutherford, a lively, interactive, speed-networking event for members that begins with lunch and then provides participants the opportunity to meet 40 new people in a short amount of time. This members-only event is usually held on the first Friday of every other month at various Rutherford County businesses from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the cost is $10. Chamber officials say participants can make a week’s worth of contacts during the 90-minute session, all without spending the entire day away from the office.
