​​​ Vermilion County Farm Bureau
  Serving Vermilion County Agriculture Since 1918

Once again, Vermilion County farmers had an outstanding year raising corn and soybeans across the county. 

Vermilion County

ranked 10th in corn

production by raising

46.41 million bushels.

The yield of 218.4

bushels per acre was

just .4 short of the

record set in 2018.

We also maintained our top 10 string in soybean production by raising 14.466 million bushels of beans, good for 6th in Illinois. The bean yield was 67.6 bushels per acre.

During research in 2021 & 2022, consumers

perceive that only 47% of Illinois farms

are family-owned. The reality is 96% of

Illinois farms are family-owned and operated.

The Illinois Farm Families coalition - which

includes Illinois Farm Bureau - has developed a

statewide advertising campaign to increase

awareness of Illinois family farm ownership and build

trust in Illinois farmers. The campaign kicked off with an

ad during the Super Bowl, and will continue April thru
June across the state.

Our Ag Week placemats will be in restaurants next week sharing more about our farmers here in Vermilion County.
