Win a Free T-Shirt! Register for the Harvest Auction by Friday

You could win one of our t-shirts just for registering for our Harvest Auction by Friday!

The Harvest Auction opens THIS Sunday and features more than 60 fabulous food, farm, and travel packages. 

You can bid on farm-to-table dinners, farm tours, thanksgiving turkeys, get-aways, bread baking classes and more until October 13th!

Your winning bids help build collective power to bring farmers and eaters together, shift policy, and create a more just and regenerative food and farm system.

To participate in the auction, simply create a free account with Handbid. There’s no need to enter credit card information until you decide to make a bid. And you won’t be charged unless you win. 

Everyone who registers by 5:00pm Friday, October 1st will be entered into a raffle to win a limited edition soft t-shirt from the Alliance. 

One auction item you might love is the“flour bouquet” from Janie’s Mill featuring an array of locally grown and ground flour by farmer Harold Wilkens. Harold took the leap several years ago to start one of the only on-farm flour mills in the state. The flour bouquet can be shipped anywhere in Illinois and is perfect for your upcoming holiday baking. 

Are your bidding fingers ready?

The first step is to register with Handbid today to start perusing auction items. More are being added daily.

The auction will open at 5pm on Sunday, October 3rd and end at 8pm on October 13th, for 10 days of food and farm fun.
