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. 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 specialty products like honey, wild rice, and cheese.

The Minnesota Grown Program works hard to provide members with marketing tools and resources. For more information about member-services, visit our Members & Retailers page in the footer below to be directed to more information.
