March is Agriculture Appreciation Month in Indiana.
Indiana wineries are the leading agri-tourism destination in the state of Indiana, attracting over 2 million visitors each year. With over 600 acres of grapes growing in the state, viticulture in Indiana is a growing and vital part of Indiana’s agriculture landscape. A special thanks goes out to Jeanette Merritt of the Indiana Wine Grape Council for her hard work and dedication in promoting Indiana’s wineries. We truly appreciate all of the support from our neighbors and friends.
So help celebrate Agriculture Appreciation Month! May we suggest a few ideas:
- Purchase Indiana wine, beer, fruits, vegetables, flowers or meat from a farmers market, local store, local restaurant or local winery.
- Tour an Indiana farm.
- Hug your favorite Indiana farmer. They deserve a little extra love this month. We did….
The following websites are great resources for finding Indiana farms and farmer’s markets.
Hug a farmer! Celebrate Agriculture Appreciation Month and the arrival of spring! Cheers!!
