Dinner is Grown

Now, more than ever, people are asking the important questions of how food is grown, where it comes from and how it gets to our dinner plates.


BASF Agricultural Solutions started Dinner is Grown in 2019 to gather farmers, media and community voices from across the country to discuss the important questions and take you along the journey of preparing food for America's tables.


The purpose of Dinner is Grown is to make connections, build relationships, and have critical conversations to foster a greater understanding between today's farmers and consumers.



Dinner Conversation

Our Events

The Dinner is Grown discussion is important to have all of the time. However, throughout the year we put issues front and

center at a dinner table filled with growers, influencers, members of the media and BASF representatives. The events are the

perfect pairing of good food and great conversation.

Paul Rea shares his take on a one-of-a-kind event

No matter where you live or what you do for a living, we all share one common denominator - food. It nourishes us and sustains our health but it's more than that. It defines our culture, shapes our experiences, evokes emotion and perhaps most importantly, it brings us together.
