110 years of Hancock County Farm Bureau

Over 2,200 total members with over 1,000 actively involved in agriculture!

Hancock County Farm Bureau is a membership-based organization working to serve the interest and needs of the farmers and residents of Hancock County. 

  • On March 27, 1913, farmers from throughout the county met at the courthouse in Carthage, IL to form the Soil Improvement Association. On February 28, 1918, the name was changed to Hancock County Farm Bureau. 

  • Though much has changed throughout our organization over the past 110 years, on thin has remained the same - we continue to serve the needs of farmers and resident in Hancock County.

The 2024 Hancock County Land Atlas and Plat Book is available from the Hancock County Farm Bureau. This newest edition published by Rockford Map Publishers is available for purchase for $25 for members and $30 for non-members from the Farm Bureau office:

544 Wabash Ave., Carthage, IL 62321. 

Plat books may be purchased with a credit card over the phone by calling our office at 217-357-3141. We can mail them for an added fee.

 The plat book accurately displays parcel boundaries, acreage data, roadways, waterways, railways, section lines, municipal boundaries, recreational areas, and includes an index to landowners. A 3D aerial map lies opposite each township parcel map and is very useful in providing a quick gauge to the use of a particular parcel.

Plat books are a great reference tool for landowners and business owners. It is a necessary reference guide for industries such as agriculture, land development, hunting, real estate, utilities, municipal government, and more.
