  • Develops cooperative marketing opportunities.
  • Serves as a venue for networking and information gathering.
  • Markets agritourism.
  • Promotes South Dakota product identity.
  • Offers educational programs.
  • Supports research.
  • Partners with other organizations on common goals. 

About Our Site

We've designed our site to be a hub for communication among SDSPA members, as well as a means of showcasing our members' products to the public. Whether you’re a producer or consumer, you’ll find lots of helpful information here. The site continues in development, with more member pages to come.

Have ideas for us? We welcome your feedback (contact us here), and we look forward to serving you.
