About the Missouri Fruit and Vegetable Growers Database

New Marketing Opportunity for
Fruit and Vegetable Growers

University of Missouri Extension and the Missouri Department of Agriculture are in the process of developing a database of Missouri fruit and vegetable growers that will be available on the AgEBB World Wide Web page. This new marketing tool will allow potential buyers to search for Missouri growers who produce specific crops. They will be able to limit their search to a specific region of the state, if the crop is organically or conventionally produced, the marketing method, and other parameters.

A list of fruit and vegetable producers is then be generated which meets the search criteria that the purchaser is looking for. The grower's name, address, phone number, and e-mail address (not required) will be shown. It also will show how the grower markets his crop: wholesale, u-pick, roadside stands, farmer's markets, mail order, etc.

There will be no charge to be listed in this database. If you are interested in having your farm included in this new marketing tool, please enter a new listing for your farm on-line, or contact the University of Missouri Extension person in your region listed below.
