Peas Pass Some Green Giant Farm Fun

I’ve always wondered how vegetables get from the field to my table… and now I get to find out.

I’m heading to Minnesota to meet the folks that put the jolly in Jolly Green Giant.

As one of 24 bloggers invited on a Green Giant Valley Visit, I’m going to get a behind-the-scenes view of the Agriculture Research Center, Seed Vault, test plant, and corn fields.

They’ve even promised a ride on a tractor.

If you’ve followed my writing on, you know that many companies send me free seeds, plants, books, and other gardening products to try in my own garden and then write about. I’ve tried many new things that I otherwise wouldn’t have known about and I’ve always shared my candid insights.

This trip is similar. General Mills and Green Giant are sponsoring the event hoping that I’ll share my experiences with you. I’m encouraged to express my honest opinions about any products or services they provide as part of the Valley Visit Program.

I’m looking forward to meeting Lil Sprout and the Green Giant experts and agronomists. I’m planning to ask a lot of questions on how Green Giant grows its vegetables and the new approaches the company is researching for the future.

Do you have any questions you’d like me to ask while I’m there? If so, please send them in an email to me at by Aug. 17. I’ll do my best to get every question answered.

Also, you can join us on the Valley Visit by following along on Twitter using the #GreenGiantVV hashtag.

Hi Lindsay, thanks for stopping by…it’ll be interesting to find out more about everyone’s vegetable interests.
