New Campaign Promotes Products By Veteran Farmers

Illinois farmers, ranchers, and fishermen who’ve served in the military are getting a boost to help promote their Ag products.

The state unveiled a new logo Tuesday that lets consumers know that the products they see in stores were grown right here in Illinois, by a farmer who served his or her country.

The state also wants to recruit more veterans to become farmers.
The Homegrown by Heroes program will offer them the training and informational resources they’ll need to get started.
