Michigan agriculture is homemade wholesome goodness. With over 300 varieties of food grown and raised on family farms, more tables are serving up our favorite meats, dairy and produce from over ten million acres throughout the state. Pure Michigan's agriculture contributes over 90 billion dollars to our state's economy, and employs over a million of our neighbors.
Rolling fields of corn, wheat and soybeans, coupled with barns of chickens, pigs and cattle, all add to Michigan's scenic and culinary landscape -- and remind us of our rich and vital farming heritage. 98% of Michigan farms are owned by families just like yours, with a tradition and dedication to quality food production, caring for the land and animals, and a commitment to a green future. There's nothing like snacking on a crisp autumn apple, enjoying a lush pear, carving a craggy face on a Halloween pumpkin, or enjoy grilling juicy steaks and pork chops on a fall afternoon. The seasons may fade, but Michigan agriculture is enduring - taste the Pure Michigan difference.
