ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The annual Minnesota Grown Directory is now available.
The directory is a statewide guide to purchasing directly from local producers. The 2014 edition lists a record 978 farms and includes the most community supported agriculture farms and farmers markets yet. It also offers a growing number of family friendly activities.
The 2014 directory also features Minnesota Grown spokeswoman and Olympian Carrie Tollefson and her family, who advocate eating healthy, local food.
Free printed copies of the Minnesota Grown Directory are available from Explore Minnesota Tourism at 1-888-TOURISM. Copies can also be ordered online from MinnesotaGrown.com, where consumers can also look up local farms and products near them.
