JEFFERSON CITY, MO/November 22, 2017 (STL.News) From turkey to sweet potatoes and green beans to pumpkin pie, Missouri farms produce food that will have a place on the dinner table on Thanksgiving. Missourians are fortunate to be home to plentiful agriculture which grows a variety of foods like beef, pork, peaches, walnuts, watermelon, potatoes, sweet corn and so much more. Today, the Missouri Department of Agriculture has unveiled its new Missouri Grown web site, www.MissouriGrownUSA.com, which connects consumers to the bounty of food grown and raised in the Show Me State.

“We are excited to announce the launch of an expanded Missouri Grown website that we are confident will reach MORE Missourians with the positive stories of food and farming,” Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn said. “We’ve made the biggest changes this program website has seen in nearly a decade. The site will offer an experience that will connect Missouri citizens to the men and women who provide quality food products.”

For the first time ever, consumers now have a list of Missouri Grown products at their fingertips. At home or in the grocery store, MissouriGrownUSA.com has been optimized to work on a desktop or mobile device. At Missouri Grown, you’ll discover the best Missouri has to offer.

The new web site, www.MissouriGrownUSA.com, has a streamlined, improved search feature and more tailored categories that allow users to search for exactly what they want, where they want it.
