MANHATTAN, Kan. — In recognition of From the Land of Kansas, the agricultural trademark program which is a visible and important link between producers and consumers of Kansas agricultural products, Governor Sam Brownback proclaimed January as From the Land of Kansas Month.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture strives to serve Kansas farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses and consumers by providing support and assistance to help Kansas businesses grow, which keeps money in Kansas communities, building stronger businesses and local economies. The From the Land of Kansas program at KDA provides agribusiness marketing opportunities to participating local businesses, and allows consumers to identify and choose to support products that contain Kansas ingredients or items processed in Kansas.
“Agriculture businesses are a vibrant part of communities and contribute to the economic well-being and quality of life for Kansans,” said Janelle Dobbins, program marketing manager. “From the Land of Kansas supports more than 400 farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses from more than 80 percent of our counties. We encourage all Kansans to learn more about Kansas products and support their friends and neighbors as we celebrate those who grow, produce, process or manufacture agriculture products in our state.”
Opportunities to purchase From the Land of Kansas products can be found at shop.fromthelandofkansas.com and in many stores around the state.
