Thank You to our Outgoing Oregon Pasture Network Program (OPN) Manager!

We are sadly announcing the departure of Courtney Stone as our OPN Program Manager effective March 29th. What a year it has been! Courtney has brought so much insight, organization and thoughtfulness to our team and we are immensely grateful for her contributions to the OPN program and FoFF over the past year. She will be leaving to pursue her graduate studies and will be sorely missed!

Dear FoFF Supporters,

I am writing to inform you of my decision to step down from my position as the Program Manager at the Oregon Pasture Network, effective at the end of March. While this decision has not been easy, I am excited to share that I have been offered a full-time role that aligns closely with my graduate degree and offers a unique opportunity for professional growth and development. This new position also includes a comprehensive scholarship that will support my continued education and professional advancement. 

I want to express my sincere gratitude to the entire team at Friends of Family Farmers for the invaluable experiences, support, and camaraderie that I have enjoyed during my time here. Additionally, it has been a privilege to work alongside the dedicated and passionate OPN Members who share a common commitment to sustainable agriculture and community empowerment.

As I transition into this new chapter of my career, I remain deeply committed to the mission and vision of the Oregon Pasture Network. I am confident that the organization will continue to thrive and make a positive impact in the sustainable agriculture sector under the capable leadership of my successor. I look forward to cheering on the future accomplishments of the Oregon Pasture Network and Friends of Family Farmers. 

Warm regards,

Courtney Stone
