Alaska grown.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Neighborhoods throughout the state have farmers markets during the summer with local, independent farms selling fresh produce. The agriculture industry in Alaska developed the Alaska Grown logo, which highlights Alaska farm products, which range from vegetables, meat, milk, eggs, and honey to furs and wool products.

According to the Alaska Department of Natural Resources Division of Agriculture, "Our policy is to allow use of the logo on quality local products that meet the established grade standards for the top two grades for the particular item ... [And] all food products will be 100 percent locally grown except in the case of processed food items which require some condiments, spices, etc. Processed products will have at least 75 percent content of items grown in Alaska."
