Michigan Agriculture Council
The Michigan Ag Council is an organization of commodity groups and agribusinesses working together to raise awareness of food and agriculture today. In Michigan, we enjoy 300+ great-tasting, high-quality fresh foods and products because more than 50,000 local families farm here.
We all benefit from Michigan farm families who take pride in perfecting the art and science of growing fresh, high-quality foods and products, year after year. Our partners work together to highlight Michigan commodities, agricultural practices and the diligent farm families who work every day to provide Michigan with safe, high quality foods and products.

- Engage individuals with questions about food and farming
