The first session will be at 10:00 a.m. and the other at 2:00 p.m.

96% of Illinois farms are family owned. If you thought it was just faceless corporations “managing” these fields and animals from afar, we hope you’re pleasantly surprised. Because what you’ll find on Illinois farms are families, just like yours.
