    WELCOME TO THE CHICAGO FARMERS!

    Thank you to all who participated in our May 11th webinar where John Piotti, President of American Farmland Trust, presented "Farming is our Future: How We Must ‘Get Farming Right’ to Avert Future Crises." The Chicago Farmers takes the summer off, so while we were not able to properly say farewell for now, we hope that you stay safe these next few months and that we see you in the fall!

Farmers National, a gold Sponsor of the Chicago Farmers, manages $9.2 million worth of land and is one of the country’s largest independent oil and gas leasing firms. Click here to read more!
