Meet the Farmers of Illinois

Did you know that today, nearly all Illinois farms – 96 percent – are family owned? While our farms may come in different shapes and sizes, we all value the same thing: responsibly growing safe, healthy food for your table and ours. We are excited to share our stories with you and answer your questions about how your food is grown on our farms.

Get to know local farm families by clicking on the map pins near your location. Want to know more? Click on their image to learn more about their farm and read their blog posts.
