Illinois Agriculture: Let’s Grow

Farming means so much more than growing crops and raising livestock. Farming puts food on your table, fuel in your car and clothes on your back. Farming affects every person in Illinois. Yet many people remain unaware as to how significant of a role farming plays in our state.

Organizations throughout the state work together to grow Illinois communities—both rural and urban. Together, we’ve created this book to provide insight into safe, wholesome foods, animal care, sustainability and green technologies.

We hope that you find this resource to be informative and useful. If you are interested in learning more about the information within this book, or you want to know how agriculture is impacting your district, contact any of the organizations listed at the end of this book.
