Grocery Store Tours Featuring ND

Posted:

It's National Agriculture Week.

And you don't need to go to the farm to learn about where your food comes from.
A trip to the grocery store can tell a lot about the story of how your food gets to the table.
This history tour is specifically pointing out the foods that have North Dakota roots.

(Robert Hanna / Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center) "Probably my favorite are the Great Northern Beans. Little white beans some of the most popular white beans in the world. Those were actually bred by the Hidasta tribe, the women of that tribe hundreds of years ago and we still grow tens of thousands of acres of them in North Dakota and sell them all over the world."

Another interesting fact, the first Buttercup squash was bred at NDSU.
The tours are provided by The State Ag Department and the Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Foundation.
The tours are held at North Dan's Supermarket and free and open to the public.
Tomorrow's tours will be held at 1 and 8 p.m.
