General Mills partners with local ag company

Midwestern BioAg, a Madison-based biological farming company founded by Gary Zimmer nearly 40 years ago, has caught the attention of food manufacturer General Mills.

According to a story in the Wisconsin State Journal, General Mills agreed to partner with Zimmer to convert a 34,000-acre farm in South Dakota into an organic farm where it will grow wheat for its line of Annie’s Macaroni & Cheese.
