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. 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.

Illinois Farms Are Family-Owned

Harvest season can be particularly dangerous for farmers with long hours and stress of weather delays, equipment breakdowns or high operating costs. We're working together to ensure farmers make it home safely to their families at night.
