Illinois Farm Bureau is highlighting the breadth of our state’s agricultural diversity with a new page and interactive map. View it here.
The map shows counties home to farm and ag businesses that are part of Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton’s Cultivating Our Communities campaign to raise awareness of the state’s agricultural diversity. Clicking on a dark green county will bring up information about each business and a link to the FarmWeekNow story about it. The map will be updated as new businesses and stories are added.
The page also offers information about Food MarketMaker, Buy Fresh Buy Local Illinois and Illinois Specialty Growers Association that along with Illinois Farm Bureau collaborated with organizations across Illinois to build directories, farm profiles, stories and e-commerce.
