THE GROW MN FOOD PLAN
A Greater Minnesota’s Grow MN Food Plan is simple. We support all good Minnesota farms, food and jobs. Click on any of the five points of the plan to find out more.
Support All Good Farms
Minnesota needs all good farms, regardless of size or approach, to meet different consumer preferences and to feed a growing global population.
Support New Investments in Research that Enhance Agriculture Productivity and Sustainability
We all want nutritional/safe food that is produced with sound and sustainable farm practices that is affordable for consumers and allows farmers, agriculture and food companies in Minnesota to be profitable.
Help Rural Minnesota Grow
The economic growth in Greater Minnesota and rural areas has not kept pace with the Twin Cities metro area.
An additional priority to helping rural Minnesota grow is to ensure Minnesota’s regulatory climate does not put Minnesota’s agriculture and food sector at a competitive disadvantage relative to competing states.
Address the Larger Issues Related to Water Quality
Recent attention has singled out farm practices as the primary contributor to water quality issues in Minnesota. Minnesota farmers have a vested interest in protecting the environment and the water near their farms, which is important for their drinking water, livestock and crops.
