Knoxville (WVLT) -- Antique tractors and exotic animals were but a few of things to enjoy at the University of Tennessee Ag Day on Saturday.

The event serves as an open house for UT's Institute of Agriculture.

One of the most popular exhibits is the petting zoo.

It gave kids and adults alike the chance to touch and learn about some creepy creatures.

"You get a wide range of responses," said Carla Dilling, a UT Ag graduate student. "Especially with the hissing cockroaches, from screaming to pure excitement."

Keeping with the insect theme, honey producers were there showing off their best combs.

And of course farmers were on hand to explaining how they contribute to our food supply.
