Start Seeing Farmers Shirt Offer

McHenry County Farm Bureau’s Young Leaders Committee is holding a just-in-time Christmas T-Shirt fundraiser. The “Start Seeing Farmers” shirt features the Young Leader’s brand new logo and a tractor with an SMV sign. The writing on the back of the shirt reads “Caution, Slow Down, Share The Road”.  You can customize your shirt with your own farm name or make your “little farmer” feel extra special by utilizing their name i.e. Noah’s Farm. 

Thank You Donors

We would like to thank all the donors who have already contributed to our Ag in the Classroom fundraising campaign!

In October, 57 teachers from 13 school districts will receive a total of 154 ag-related books. This fall, we will visit 50 different classrooms with our Pumpkin Patch Pie program. The presentation includes the pumpkin life cycle as well as a pumpkin treat at the end of the program.

If you would like to partner with us to educate students in our local schools about the importance of agriculture, please click here.

Jordan Peterson, 2016 MCFB Summer Intern Wrap Up:

Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye to another summer. As fall comes rolling around the corner, it is safe to say I will miss all the beautiful times of summer. Most importantly I will miss my wonderful opportunity of being the McHenry County Farm Bureau Summer Intern. The experience is one that I will cherish forever, as it gave me lasting memories and new knowledge.
