Status: In use


This tag should describe a feature's output produced though a natural process of growing or breeding, possibly with human intervention e.g. provision of water, planting etc. This tag must be associated with a suitable physical feature where it is produced. Typically these features are landuse=* such as landuse=farmland or water.

Produce or Product?

A guide by example. If the whole live animal/fish or plant is sold off the 'farm' then tag it as produce. If it is killed and then sold with little processing then that is ok for tagging as produce. If the processing is 'extensive' then it is a product=* not produce, so it should use the product=* key. Fuzzy like life. Use your judgement.

If the output of the feature is is man made or manufactured in a factory or part of industrial production the product=* tag should be used.

More references to the difference:


These are non physical characteristics and must be associated with a physical feature - a farm, forest etc.

Multiple values

Where multiple values should be entered use a semicolon as a separator e.g. produce=wheat;barley. This allows for farm rotation practices without burdening OSM or mappers with constant updates.


The use of this tag on some selling points like shop=farm is contested. Strictly a shop does not 'produce', it 'sells', it is the farm that produces.

If there is need to render this tag which seems unlikely it would seem a better idea to render based on the value rather than a general icon based on the key.

Alternative is to render a transparent overlay based on the value of this key over the physical feature rendering, this has been used in some of the tables below in suggested rendering column.
