Michigan agriculture encompasses a true cornucopia of commodities, including dry beans, red tart cherries, blueberries, cucumbers for pickles, floriculture products, beef, Christmas trees and dairy products, just to name a few. The Great Lakes State’s food and agriculture industry is worth a whopping $101.2 billion, and Michigan consistently ranks in the top 10 in the nation for more than 51 different commodities.

To keep those crops and livestock thriving on more than 51,600 farms covering 9.94 million acres of land across the state, Michigan farmers have to focus on the environment. As the original conservationists, farmers understand the importance of conserving natural resources to keep them efficient in business, protect their livelihood, and preserve land for future generations of Michigan farmers.
