Illinois Farmer Veterans Alliance
Illinois has a robust farming community that yields a sense of purpose and identity for veterans in agriculture.
Illinois Farm Bureau, along with several partners around the state, developed the Illinois Farmer Veterans Alliance program as a resource for veterans who are interested in agriculture or are already working in agriculture. This program will help link Illinois veterans with agriculture opportunities.
Farmer Veteran Alliance cultivates a meaningful place for veterans in Illinois and increases the viability of veteran-run farms by establishing a strong farmer-veteran relationship, facilitating business and marketing opportunities and developing a resource pipeline in collaborating with partner organizations.
Join us today and help build this unique community of farmers in Illinois.
