The South Central Minnesota Grower’s Network is a group of sustainable producers who meet regularly to share information and best practices, learn together and learn from each other. They represent growers, a cidery, a fall pumpkin patch and cottage industries located in south central Minnesota.

The Grower’s Network is part of a USDC/NRCS project to increase the amount and awareness of locally grown foods, connect urban consumers with rural producers and provide technical assistance to historically underserved farmers.

The network meets monthly October through May.
