The Minnesota Grown Program is a statewide partnership between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and Minnesota producers of specialty crops and livestock. It was created nearly 30 years ago by specialty crop growers to differentiate their produce from produce grown thousands of miles away.

Minnesota Grown creates the annual Minnesota Grown Directory, which connects Minnesotans directly to farmers, farmers markets, and other producers. It also includes fun facts and family-friendly activity suggestions. Search through the Directory to find farmers markets, CSA farms, garden centers, wineries, fruit & vegetable growers, pick-your-own farms, livestock producers, meat processors, Christmas tree growers, and producers gourmet products like honey, wild rice, and cheese.

The Directory is available in print and also online. The Directory is available statewide through travel information centers, libraries, chambers-of-commerce, Explore Minnesota Tourism, member producersā€™ farms, and at special events like the Minnesota State Fair.
