Indiana Grown – Vegetable Crops Hotline

Indiana Grown

Indiana Grown is an initiative through the Indiana State Department of agriculture that supports products made by Hoosiers for Hoosiers. If you grow, raise, package or produce a product in Indiana then Indiana Grown is right for you. As a member, you will have access to the Indiana Grown logo, promotional and marketing support, a community to share ideas and successes, increased product and brand awareness and introductions to retailers, partners and restaurants.

Our goal is to help consumers more easily identify these products by using in-store signage, a sticker on the packaging or the digital Indiana Grown Logo. Members choose how the logo can work for their particular branding needs. Some choose to adhere our logo stickers to their product to help identify them as an Indiana Grown member, some will use our digital logo on their website and some will hang a sign at their farm stands. How the Indiana Grown branding can work for the member is up to the individual member.

Since 2015, we have worked hard to gain partnership with many of the retail outlets in Indiana that sell food or beverages. We want the Indiana consumer to more easily find locally made and grown food at their neighborhood grocery store. Indiana Grown products can be found in a variety of locations such as grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurants, farmers markets and many more.

When you buy Indiana Grown products, you are keeping dollars and food close to home and supporting fellow Hoosiers. You are supporting job creation and building sustainable communities, while preserving Indiana’s agricultural heritage!

My role with Indiana Grown is to find new members across a variety of backgrounds and to help grow our existing members. From sampling events to wholesale buyers to helping members tell their stories of Indiana agriculture- we offer quite a bit to the Indiana agricultural business owner. Best of all- membership to Indiana Grown is free. There is no cost to join.
