The Land Connection staff members, and many local farmers are heading up to LaCrosse Wisconsin today.  There, we will get together with over 2,500 other organic growers and supporters of organic agriculture from dozens of Midwest states and beyond, and participate in meetings, workshops, and the all-important conversations in hallways and in front of the bulletin boards.

The "Route 24" corridor that runs like a narrow (2-lane) belt across the mid-section of Central Illinois is sprouting more and more organic acres. We recently spoke with a family near Forrest, IL and learned of a great opportunity for a beginning farmer. Available immediately is a two bedroom home with about 3 acres ready to be planted. The property also features a large building with a concrete floor and garage doors that could be used for packing vegetables, assembling beehives, or whatever you are interested in doing.
