What Our Region Grows

In response to growing public interest in local food production and demand, the Regional Agricultural Workgroup (RAW) has prepared the "What Our Region Grows" report. The report examines the many opportunities and challenges facing 21st century farmers in the 8,629 mi2 Washington agricultural region. Also in the report:

  • An overview of local agricultural food production and estimated demand
  • Summary of regional agricultural statistical data
  • Information on our food sources
  • Relationship beween regional grain production and the Eastern Shore poultry industry
  • A suite of recommendations to help support regional agriculture


A free, downloadable PDF version of the 47-page report is available on the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government's online publications store.
