The new Minnesota Grown Directory is now here, highlighting products and services available directly from Minnesota farmers and farmers markets. This year’s publication features 1,023 members from across the state.
The Minnesota Grown Directory is searchable by region, farm name, or product. It includes locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, dairy items, wineries, nurseries, Christmas trees, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) operations, and more.
“The Minnesota Grown Directory is a great resource for Minnesotans and visitors to our state who are looking for fresh, local products,” said Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen. “The Directory is one of the best places to find local farms and farmers markets, and gives our farmers another avenue to sell their products.”
There are several new features for the 2019 Directory:
- Readers can search by new product categories, including On-farm Dinners/Tastings, Hemp, Microgreens, and Pick-your-own farm opportunities.
- In addition to Certified Organic, readers can now also search by Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certified farms.
- Readers will find fresh and delicious recipes from Directory sponsor Minnesota Farmers Union’s Minnesota Cooks program.
- Photos from member farms and markets, as well as illustrations by Minnesota artist Maria Rose Adams, are prominently featured throughout the Directory.
