State Department of Agriculture Program: Arizona
State Department of Arizona
Arizona features great climate for year-round growing and for businesses already located here or looking to move into our state. The industry has a $17.1 billion impact on the state’s economy.
Arizona Grown: Starting as a seedling in the early 1990s, Arizona Grown has been growing ever since to raise awareness about the benefits of buying locally grown produce and plants. We wanted to make it easy for shoppers to spot Arizona products. That’s what inspired us to create the orange logo Arizona farmers use to distinguish the fruits of their labor, grown right here in The Grand Canyon State. http://arizonagrown.org/
