Welcome to Indiana Grown!
Spanning 19 million acres of farm and forest, Indiana's more than 60,000 farms grow, produce, and process some of the highest quality products in the United States.  Hoosiers spend approximately $16 billion per year buying food, but less than 10% of that is sourced within Indiana.
Let 200 Years of Hoosier Know-how add up to tonight’s dinner.
