Northwest, North Dakota

Northwest North Dakota ,

If you've never visited North Dakota, you owe us a visit. After all, we've visited you. In fact, we're in your pantry right now. North Dakota is the nation's leading producer of a long list of agricultural products: The wheat in your bread, the durum in your pasta and the sunflower or canola oil you cook with, to name a few.

Driving through the state in springtime,you'll enjoy an ocean of emerald green young crops and pastures. Summer brings bright yellow canola and sunflower fields and shimmering blue flax. And of course late summer and fall bring the amber waves of grain you've been singing about. For suggestions on agriculture-related tours, including ranches, farms, food processing plants, corn mazes, farmer's markets and more, call 1-800-HELLO-ND.
