DANVILLE -- Farmers are putting a face to their products. The Vermilion County Farm Bureau bagged groceries for shoppers Thursday.

It's to celebrate Illinois Farming Month and teach people more about the importance of agriculture. They handed out information packets to shoppers covering a variety of topics, including food prices and how farming gives back to the economy.
