"I always knew that I wanted to somehow make a difference in the world. I didn’t know what exactly that meant, and I still don’t, but I had a sense that it would be great if I could do something I was good at, that would also help people, and maybe make the world, in some ways, better."
Terra Brockman was raised in Central Illinois, where her great-grandparents had immigrated in the 1800’s. Unlike the three generations of farmers before her, Terra decided to explore a career as a writer and editor after finishing undergraduate and graduate degrees in English literature and biology at Illinois State University. As a writer, she pursued jobs in both Japan and New York City, and traveled to many third world countries along the way. It was during her travels when Brockman realized the importance of fresh, locally grown food. In 2001, she returned to her roots in Central Illinois. Once here, she created The Land Connection to preserve farmland and help farmers connect consumers with great local food.
