Becoming a Known & Grown farmer is easy!

Here are the  simple steps to join our network.

Complete the Known & Grown Farmer Interest Form.

Our program is free of charge for farmers. 

After completing the initial interest form, our Farmer Specialist will schedule a visit. At the visit, you will be asked a series of questions about your practices and give a brief tour of your farm. 

Known & Grown farms must adhere to our Good Stewardship farm practices.

After the visit, farmers receive a page on our website, a spot on our map, promotion on social media, access to our newsletter updates, and opportunities to connect with other farmers in our farmer meetings.
