Minnesota Grown directory seeks new members

From staff and news service reports

When it comes to producing food, southeastern Minnesota does its part to help feed the state.

The Minnesota Grown directory, which is approaching the deadline for applicants for the 2019 print booklet, shows almost 150 farms that grow fresh vegetables and fruit, produce honey, raise poultry and grow more within 50 miles of Rochester.

The directory has been around since the 1980s, when the state Department of Agriculture would print 60,000 copies a year. Next year, Minnesota Grown expects to print 155,000 copies of the directory.
