"Sustaining Our Future: A Family Farm" Story Debuts

01/04/2023 @ 11:35 am

Farm Bureau is proud to highlight the work our members are doing to improve soil health and water quality through a documentary titled “Sustaining Our Future: A Farm Family Story,” which debuted in December at the Illinois Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in Chicago.


Annual Meeting attendees were granted a sneak peak of the hourlong documentary, which follows the Ganschow family of Bureau County to illustrate how three generations of farmers approach sustainability. Their efforts are representative of the farmer spirit and collaboration required to achieve the goals of the Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy, which involves the work of countless Farm Bureau members implementing solutions on their farms.


Illinois farmers have a proven track record when it comes to caring for our natural resources. Whether implementing new solutions to utilize fertilizer efficiently, installing conservation practices, or engaging in meaningful discussions with university researchers and industry partners, farmer efforts continue to drive innovative solutions that improve their farms while protecting the environment.
