Illinois Direct Farm Business: A Guide to Laws Affecting Direct Farm Business in Illinois

This Guide was developed to help clarify some of the most important rules pertaining to direct farm businesses and to provide guidance on how and where to get correct information about them. The goal of this Guide is to foster a more vibrant direct farm business environment – not only for the farmers who bring locally-grown food to markets within their communities, but also for the consumers who buy that food.
