Join us on September 25th from 12-1pm for our next information session in our Lunch and Learn Series. Come learn about the past, present, and where we go from here to move forward towards a future where our land and water resources, rural communities, and small farms are healthy and thriving.
SB85 was introduced in the 2023 Legislative Session as a moratorium on new Large Tier 2 CAFO permits in the state but we were quickly told by industry opposition that there was no chance for a moratorium. We needed to come up with concrete changes that we wanted to see made to the system. Although this process was intended to be conducted during a moratorium to allow for thoughtful debate and research, we dove in and proposed changes to protect small farms. This bill represents years of work for FoFF, the Stand Up to Factory Farms Coalition and other passionate people around the state that are concerned about the industrialization of our agricultural system.
We are poised to make meaningful change. This was a step forward, but it is also the beginning of a road to a truly responsible future for Oregon Agriculture.
