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.
