2020 Oregon Family Farms Survey

We were rolling with the punches in 2020! Instead of in person events such as our Listening Sessions, we put out an Oregon Family Farms Survey to be completed by farmers and ranchers as well as eaters and advocates from across the state.  This information helps us frame our advocacy and programming for the next two years, including the 2021 Session of the Oregon Legislature.

2018 Farmer and Rancher Listening Sessions

We held 19 Farmer and Rancher Listening Sessions across the state during our 2017-2018 Listening Session Tour. You can read the final report here!

Background:

Since 2009, we have held biennial Listening Sessions with Oregon’s family farmers and ranchers, hearing from hundreds and hundreds of producers over the years. This process led to the Agricultural Reclamation Act and shapes our advocacy and program work. You can read our 2016 Listening Session Report and Policy Recommendations here.
