The Arkansas Grown program, administered through the Arkansas Department of Agriculture (Department), began in 2012 to help promote the many agricultural products that are grown in Arkansas. The program is often used to help make the critical connection between producers and consumers.
The website, https://arkansasgrown.org/, was developed by the Department to help buyers locate Arkansas producers. Any Arkansan who produces an agriculture product may join the program. Listing information is provided by members.
The Arkansas Grown mark is a registered trademark of the Arkansas Department of Agriculture filed with the Arkansas Secretary of State. This mark is to be used solely for the purpose of promoting Arkansas agricultural products and may only be used under written agreement with the Department in conjunction with the Arkansas Grown Branding Program.
For the purpose of the Arkansas Grown Branding Program, the term “Arkansas agricultural
product” is best defined to mean raw or finished goods consisting entirely of or made
substantially from farm, forest, and nursery products
produced in Arkansas. The Department has sole authority to determine if products meet these standards and may
establish criteria specific to unique products.
Those wishing to display the Arkansas Grown brand on their product or at their point of sale must make application to the Department Marketing Division on the appropriate registration forms found on the website at https://arkansasgrown.org/become-a-member/.
Use of the Arkansas Grown brand does not imply any affiliation or endorsement by the
Department and no such
statement can be made by the registrant.
Registration to use the Arkansas Grown brand may be revoked at any time if the brand is used in a manner inconsistent with the requirements of the Arkansas Grown Branding Program.
