The Acre

An Illinois soybean checkoff program


Whether you’re here for the first time or back to check out another stage, welcome to The Acre! Throughout the year, we’ll unlock different stages focused on food and farming such as:

  • What happens on farms during the winter
  • Animal care
  • GMOs
  • Sustainability
  • Getting food from the farm to the table

You can explore these topics as told by a variety of local soybean farmers who work hard to care for their land and animals and raise healthy food for your families and their own.


Let’s Fill the Feed Bin

Share The Acre with your friends and family to help raise money for food depositories in the Chicago area. For each click on the infographic or share on Facebook or Twitter, one dollar worth of ground pork will be donated to Pork Power – a program that provides a source of quality protein to local food banks. Watch the feed bin increase to the peak donation of $3,000.
