RI Grown: Grower Resources

The RI Grown program aims to help growers distinguish their products grown here in the Ocean State to consumers and wholesale buyers. The RI Grown logo can be used for general marketing of Rhode Island grown and produced foods and products such as vegetables, fruit, herbs, honey, nursery plants, cut flowers, milk, eggs, and meat. A Certified GAP logo is also available for foods produced by growers who participate in the Good Agricultural Practices.

We encourage growers to use the logo to distinguish their products grown in Rhode Island. For farms that participate in the program, we offer a range of promotional materials, and a listing on our interactive farm map and website. The RI Grown logos can also help consumers more easily identify local agriculture products on storefronts, websites, and social media, advertisements, and other materials to enhance the professionalism of the brand.

Get Fresh, Buy Local!

The RI Grown program was first launched in 2009, with the statewide "Get Fresh. Buy Local." marketing campaign. The RI Grown program aims to help growers distinguish their products grown here in the Ocean state. The use of the RI Grown logo seeks to heighten recognition and highlight Rhode Island grown products to both consumers and wholesale buyers.

The benefits of eating RI Grown are many. Supporting local farmers ensures our future food security. Minimizing the transportation of food preserves fossil fuels, drastically reduces pollution, and can eliminate much of the final cost to the consumer. Buying direct enables consumers to see just exactly where their food comes from for health and peace of mind. And, of course, the ability to get the freshest of fresh produce is no small factor.
