(INDIANAPOLIS) - A new program will brand and promote Indiana produce and farm goods.

The program called Indiana Grown is a cooperative effort among farmers, processors, wholesalers, retailers, restaurants and the Indiana State Department of Agriculture. It will include produce, field crops, and dairy, meat and poultry products.

The state Agriculture Department says all farm producers, specialty food producers, and others engaged in the production of agricultural products in Indiana are eligible to apply.

Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman announced the program last week. She says its goal is to help families in Indiana and around the world easily identify and buy Indiana-grown products. Skillman serves as the state's secretary of agriculture.
