Upcoming Meeting



Thank you to those that joined us at our Annual Meeting on May 9th at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Vandal Theatre Lab performed Vang: A Play on Immigration and opened the discussion about how farming is done in America and how immigrants have become a part of the larger, agricultural picture. As a reminder, the Chicago Farmers take the summer off with the exception of the Summer Tour. Be on the lookout for more information about the tour, as well as membership renewal notices. We'll see you again in September! 


  • Discounted registration fees
  • Subscription to "The Chicago Farmer Magazine"
  • Networking opportunities with the agri-business community
  • Scholarship contribution to students in Agricultural Colleges
