When did food get so complicated?

Buzzwords like local, sustainable and responsibly raised are part of everyday conversations and greet us at the meat counter, the milk cooler, the cereal aisles and farmers markets.

But what do they really mean?

We’re Illinois farmers, and we – along with other experts – want to share our perspectives and provide you with accurate information to make informed choices.

You’ll find we don’t all farm alike or have the same answers to every question. What we do have is a commitment to providing safe, healthy food for every table. Yours and ours included.

Moms have questions about how animals are raised, and Illinois farmers have answers.

Let's talk.
