What comes to mind when you think of agriculture?
Probably soil. Seeds. Growth. Crops. But agriculture is a lot more.
Agriculture touches every individual. It’s woven into every aspect of our economy, from the food safety standards that keep you healthy to the award-winning hyacinth in your backyard, from the cotton in your favorite golf shirt to the fuel in your hybrid. And it’s the number-one industry in Illinois.
As a result, agriculture requires leaders who have a passion for the community, technological innovation, and implementing the highest standards of safety. Whether you’re a student pursuing an agriculture degree or a donor who wants to give, it starts with you.
And that’s where the Whiteside County Farm Bureau® Foundation helps. Since our inception—and with the help of generous donors—we have provided over $140,000 to Whiteside County students as of 2022.
