Connecting You To Local Farmers in MN
Hello Market Managers and Producers!

Anything Grown is gearing up for the 2021 market and growing season. Arrowhead Regional Farm Bureau’s continued support allows Producers and Farmers Markets to participate at no cost. We have hired Mayne Design, a Duluth-based, full-service graphic design company to help with branding and promoting Anything Grown this summer.

AnythingGrown.com has a new look and has been upgraded to make it easier to use. Producers and Farmer's Markets already on the site will remain on the site. Editing your site is the same as last year. Please check your information for accuracy and update with new information.

We are working to establish a social media marketing campaign. This includes a Constant Contact email list. Subscribers will be kept up-to-date with the most current information. As we grow this list, more and more consumers will become aware of Anything Grown and the locally grown products available.

Anything Grown is on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. If you haven’t already done so, please like/follow these pages. Also, invite your family, friends, and connections to follow the pages as well. These will be used to promote Farmers Markets and Producers.

Facebook Groups: PLEASE JOIN!
As part of the social media marketing strategy, we have created two specific Facebook groups, and will created targeted content for each one:
Anything Grown Insiders
We have created a Public Facebook group called Anything Grown Insiders. This group is for consumers that want insider information about local producers and markets such as featured products, recipes, little-know-facts, stories, etc.
Anything Grown Partners
We have also created a Private Facebook group for Anything Grown website members. Along with email, we will use this platform to update current website partners on any events, specific member information, or marketing opportunities.
