Locally Grown Clothing Co., a grassroots lifestyle apparel company, announces new partnerships with more regional retailers and specialty grocers, further expanding the reach of the message-driven apparel company, and consequently, support of sustainable agriculture and local farms.

"We are thrilled to have so many new retailers partnering with us to sell Locally Grown apparel and spread the word about the importance of going local," said Fred Scott, founder and CEO of Locally Grown Clothing Co. "Our expansion is a sign that people are getting on board with sustainable agriculture and locavorism and that they see Locally Grown as a way to demonstrate local pride and connect to the local food movement."

Consumers can purchase Locally Grown apparel, including U.S. made organic t-shirts, sweatshirts, onesies and tote bags with messages like "Locally Grown," "Locavore" and "Urban Farmer" online, at their local farmers' market and now at more retail and specialty grocery stores including:

• Back Country Outfitters, Gateway Market and Campbell's Nutrition -- Des Moines, IA
• Active Endeavors and Suite Dreams -- Clive, IA
• Three Sons -- Milford, IA
• Moorman's Clothiers -- Mason City, IA
• Oneota Coop -- Decorah, IA
• The Perk -- Arnold's Park, IA
• Buckhorn Clothing Company -- Long Lake, MN
• Local D'Lish -- Minneapolis, MN
• US Outdoor Store -- Portland, OR
• Atticus -- Madison, WI

"Being part of the local movement is important to us. People are really starting to understand that buying local and eating locally grown food is good both for the economy and for their health," said Kelsey Byus, President of Locally Grown Clothing Co. "The local food movement represents a lifestyle that links the joy of good food with a commitment to community and the environment. We plan to continue expanding into shops across the country, so we can reach more people who want to sport their support with our local messages."

Wearing Locally Grown apparel lets people express their pride and support for local food producers, their community and the environment. Current designs celebrate the company's home state of Iowa, as well as Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin. More state-specific designs will continue to emerge as the company expands nationwide. The company's website also lists resources for people who want to support sustainable agriculture and family farms at many levels. Locally Grown® donates part of each sale to the nonprofit organization Food Democracy Now! to raise awareness around issues impacting the family farm.
