About

Illinois Green Pastures is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the lives of fiber producers. There are many farmers in Illinois as well as the rest of the United States that don’t know how to market their products. Illinois Green Pastures aims to educate these farmers and help them build their farms and train their workers to increase productivity and create a better and more financially sustainable life.

Illinois Green Pastures was started by Larry Schroeder when he noticed that many farmers, of fiber and other produce, are struggling to keep their farms and to make ends meet. After some research, he found that the problem was not with bad farming, but a lack of training as well as a lack of knowledge about how to market their products.
In order to help these farmers, Larry gathered a team of experts and started Illinois Green Pastures. Their aim is to promote marketing and educational services to these farmers who need it most. Many of the Illinois farmers are excellent farmers, but they don’t know how to market themselves or train their workers. That is where we come in.
Illinois Green Pastures is all about helping our hard-working farmers get themselves out there and start making enough money to sustain their farms and their families.
