Cook County Farm Bureau® has been monitoring the developments related to COVID-19. Circumstances are changing daily. Aggressive and preventative measures are being taken to protect our individual and collective health requiring many of us to adjust our normal practices, impacting all of our daily lives.
We are communicating to members that due to our concern and interest in member safety and well-being, the Board of Directors has decided to postpone the Breakfast at the Farm Bureau 100 Year Anniversary Open House and Celebration originally scheduled for March 28, 2020. We believe that we have a responsibility to do our share to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This spotlight is for local farmstands, farmers’ markets, chefs and restaurants and organizations that are hosting farm-related activities, events, workshops, and gatherings that will occur soon.
