Michigan is ranked second in the nation for it’s phenomenally diverse agricultural industry which includes asparagus, sugar beets, honey, corn, berries, apples, grapes, beans, stone fruit, potatoes and maple syrup. Additionally, the dairy industry, including milk and cheese, is a very important sector. There are 10 million acres of farmland in our state, 27% of the total land that produces over $71 billion, yes that’s BILLION, dollars per year. Much of our bounty is exported to other states and $1.6 billion is sent out of the country. Nearly 24% of the state’s workforce or 112,000 people are employed in one of the 1 million jobs that are supported by agriculture. These are some major statistics to consider as you wander the local farmer’s markets this year! Buy local, buy Michigan!
