Locally Produced Food and Agriculture Products

Eating food produced in Idaho means more than just eating fresh, local, quality products, it also means you are supporting local farmers, ranchers and food processors. Idaho Preferred® is a program of the Idaho State Department of Agriculture dedicated to identifying and promoting Idaho food and agriculture products. Fresh fruits, vegetables and meats; fine wines and specialty foods; nursery plants, trees and hay cubes – all of these products make up the wide variety of products represented by the Idaho Preferred® program. To find local products just look for the blue and gold label at your local grocery store, farmers market, restaurant, or retail nursery and enjoy the finest products around – those grown or processed right here in Idaho.
