InFARMation – Improving the Pickle Bill: More Opportunities for Small Farmer Value Added Products

November 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

InFARMation – Improving the Pickle Bill: More Opportunities for Small Farmer Value Added Products

Since the enactment of HB 2336 in 2011 (The Farm Direct Marketing Law or Pickle Bill), farmers and producers across Oregon have been utilizing this regulatory framework to safely sell fresh produce and certain low risk value-added products directly to consumers. Countless farmers and communities, particularly in rural Oregon, have benefited from the increased economic capital generated by farm to consumer sales in addition to the strengthening of local and regional food systems. With over 10 years of success stories about farmers safely selling products to consumers and enhancing their own economic opportunities, the 2023 Legislative Session offers an opportunity to build on this work and enhance Oregon’s Farm Direct Marketing Law. Come find out about the current law and its existing barriers, learn about the details of our new proposal and understand how you can get involved.
