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. The campaign was also a prominent component of our Ag Week placemats in restaurants across Vermilion County.
