Title: Minnesota Grown Logo Labeling License
Alternate Title:
Description: The Minnesota Grown Program is a statewide partnership between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and Minnesotans who grow or raise agricultural products. The program was created over 30 years ago at the request of specialty crop growers in search of a way to differentiate their fresh produce from what was being shipped in from thousands of miles away. The trademarked Minnesota Grown logo helps consumers identify agricultural products (foods, plants, fiber) grown within the state.
