ISGS also wants to celebrate the farms that are important to you by displaying photos of your favorite Illinois farm. The farm could be one you drive by everyday, one your ancestors lived on when they first settled in Illinois, or one they farmed.
Send a photo, past or present, of a farm that matters to you, and all photos received will be displayed at the Wednesday evening event!
