    WELCOME TO THE CHICAGO FARMERS!

    Thank you to all who attended the luncheon on Monday, October 15th, at the Illini Center where we welcomed Bruce Condill with The 200 Acres. Bruce gave a great presentation about pumpkins, agritourism and how he and his family have expanded their farm to our group. It was a very engaging presentation, and we appreciate all those that attended and participated in the discussion.

    Please join us for our next luncheon on Monday, November 12th, at the Illini Center where we will welcome Mr. Steve Freed, Vice President of Grain Research for ADM Investor Services, to offer his perspective on global factors and forces shaping the bottom line for Midwest farmers and the ag industry as a whole.

     SUMMER TOUR OF UNCOMMON GROUND REVIEW

    Two stories above the intersection of Devon and Glenwood Avenues in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood on the North Side and above first floor Uncommon Ground restaurant sits the first certified organic rooftop farm.

    This unique farm was the site of The Chicago Farmers’ 2018 Summer/Fall Program. The September 22nd date was perfect for a day on this organic farm. Blue skies and moderate temperatures contributed to a fun and educational experience for TCF’s group. Coincidentally, the morning of our visit, the rooftop organic farm had undergone its annual audit by the Midwestern Organic Services Association (MOSA).
