Farming techniques for a more resilient food system
The Land Connection brings together farmers from across central Illinois and beyond who are working to create a more resilient food system. This alliance supports everyone from community members who are thinking about becoming farmers to those who grew up in farming families and have been doing it all their lives. It also supports farmers who are growing everything from fruits and vegetables on an acre to those growing identity-preserved grains on thousands.
The most remarkable aspect of our farmer alliance is how many people it truly reaches in a region that is considered the heart of industrial agriculture. We are always discovering new farmers or farmers-to-be who wish to connect with our extensive network, and new partners in the industrial farming landscape who actually support our work and wish to know more about what we do.
