Michigan has long been known for the Great Lakes and the production of automobiles. What many people don’t know is that agriculture is our State’s second leading industry. Stretching from shore to shore, there is field after field of crops. From Christmas trees to apple orchards; we pretty much have it all! Whether you’re a Michigander or a visitor remember our state motto “If you seek a pleasant peninsula look about you!”

Michigan has over 53,000 farms with a total of 10.1 million acres (Michigan Agricultural Statistics 2004-2005). The state ranks first nationally in the production of:

  • Dry black beans
  • Blueberries
  • Pickling cucumbers
  • Flowering hanging baskets, impatiens and geraniums

In addition to beans and wheat, principal field crops are oats, hay, corn, rye, potatoes, soybeans and sugarbeets. The state is a major producer of apples, plums, grapes, carrots, sweet cherries, fresh-market and processing vegetables, and it long has been a major supplier of spearmint.
