State Department of Agriculture Program: Virginia
State Department of California
California Grown: California Grown is all about connecting Californians with the people who grow and produce their food. It really is that simple. Farmers have a lot of stories to tell and want to welcome you into their fields so you can really understand where your food comes from – and how important you are to the process.
California Made: CA Made is a new state labeling program designed to encourage consumer product awareness and to promote the purchase of products manufactured in California. The program is administered by the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz).
