Northern Illinois Young Farmers Coalition

Alliance - Black 95X30

Northern Illinois Young Farmers Coalition

The Northern Illinois Young Farmers chapter aims to support major themes in NYFC policies: #farmingisapublicservice, debt relief, access to land and educational resources for organic farmers.

We are devoted to supporting equity in access to land and resources to farmers of color and indigenous farmers, and changing the current landscape to bring underserved individuals and communities to the table and to power in agriculture. We now seek leadership to connect and charge the community of vibrant farmers that currently exists and thrives in urban, suburban and rural northern Illinois.


Calling all farmers (young at heart!), ranchers, land stewards, chefs & bakers, and local food system allies to join us in this vital work and fun!  Here are some easy ways to stay engaged and keep our community thriving: 


  1. Join the coalition! The membership structure of National Young Farmers Coalition is pay-what-you-can, and when signing up, you can select Northern Illinois as your affiliate chapter. And just like that, you’re a member of our chapter.
