Much of today’s food is coming from (and being packaged/processed) all over the globe so it can be difficult to know where it’s actually from. Local farmers and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture teamed up to create the Minnesota Grown program. Now you know by the ‘MN Grown’ label on the products if it’s locally grown or not. Easypeasy!
How do you really know it is? I know, I question everything these days.. Farmers must register with the Department of Agriculture each year with details on what they are growing before they are approved.
