Welcome to the website of the Michigan Wheat Program, the check-off program for Michigan wheat farmers. The Michigan Wheat Program was voted in by the state’s wheat farmers in July 2011 and reaffirmed through a continuation vote in 2016 and again in 2021. The program benefits the state’s nearly 8,000 wheat farmers who grow wheat in more than 50 of Michigan’s 83 counties.
