Farms & Food

     “There are no corn chip bushes or Cheerios vines on a farm.”                                                                                                              

-Harvey Blatt

A long and storied partnership was formed decades ago between farmers and Conservation Districts. The cooperation led to improved agricultural practices still used today. Farms vary in size and type including crops, livestock, for market, subsistence, or some combination of them.  Michigan's agriculture and food industry contributes over $100 billion annually to the state's economy.

According to future predictions, the global population is expected to increase substantially. Farmers are tasked with producing, stewarding resources, and preparing to feed an increased population on less land while dealing with climate change. Michigan produces over 300 commodities with fruit and vegetables contributing over $1 billion annually to the state's economy.
