Neighbors, friends, family or business colleagues may nominate a Master Farmer candidate, or candidates may nominate themselves. Candidates can be individuals, couples or siblings farming in partnership, who derive the majority of their income from agricultural production. Candidates who do not receive the award the year they are nominated are welcome to be re-submitted in following years. A panel of Illinois farm leaders will select recipients.


Nominations are due September 1, 2016. Further details are included in the Master Farmer Nomination Form, available as a pdf or word document.
