Our advisory board is working diligently... 

to ensure a system is created so veterans in Illinois have the resources they need to pursue a career in agriculture.

The Farmer Veterans Alliance Advisory Board consists of representatives ranging from Ag Safety programs, current Farmer Veterans, Commodities representatives, and organizations with an interest in veterans or farming.

The Illinois Farmer Veterans Alliance Advisory Board is creating a self-sustaining Illinois Farmer Veterans Alliance by developing resources about agricultural technical assistance, coordinating veteran's meetings, identifying funding sources, collaborating on an outreach and awareness plan for Homegrown by Heroes marketing, and recruiting veterans to the alliance.


Illinois has an active self-sustaining Farmer Veterans Alliance proving veterans with events and stakeholder technical assistance to support their interest and business in agriculture.
