‘Tis the season of giving! We are so proud to announce that for the second year in a row, Friends of Family Farmers is featured in the Willamette Week Give!Guide. This is a Portland metro area publication that selects the best nonprofits to support during the holiday season and we are thrilled to join the awesome organizations in the Hunger category. Along with information about how we create opportunities for our farmers, you can get some awesome incentives by donating through the Give!Guide platform. Even though WW is a Portland Area publication, many of the incentives are useful statewide, check them out on our nonprofit profile. Also keep a look out for the Big Give Day Prizes to win some amazing experiences, gifts, or services. We know incentives are not why you get involved with our work, but they certainly don’t hurt!
Now is the best time to get involved as a member of FoFF. We are only as strong as the community who supports our work. Whether you are a farmer, farm service provider, or community member who loves local food, your commitment to our work builds power for Oregon’s small and mid-size, socially and ecologically responsible farmers. Become a member today to add your voice to our chorus of people who believe in a future of thriving, localized, scale appropriate, family farms.
Why become a FoFF Member?
Becoming a member with FoFF is a way to show your support for our work on behalf of Oregon farmers, make our collective voice more powerful to decision makers, and give us the unrestricted funding we need to respond to opportunities and threats as they arise. We can’t all be farmers and if you are a farmer, you certainly can’t be in every committee hearing or working group to help build a better system. Growing our base of committed supporters makes decision makers at every level take the issues we support more seriously. With your support we can do more good!
With FoFF membership, you can be part of this movement, and ensure that there is someone looking out for farmers’ needs in Salem, providing technical assistance in land access and pasture management, creating community networks for farmers, and helping them find new customers.
This is your chance to live your values and help us rebuild our food system in a more ecologically sound, equitable, and accessible way. Like we always say, every person — urban and agrarian, farmer and eater — has the ability to make choices that can help regenerate our food system.
Benefits of FoFF Membership
Membership with FoFF is not without its perks. Although this membership is primarily about joining the movement and supporting the farming community, we want to give back to the folks who support us with some special things for members only.
- A discount of 30% on Farm Commons Membership – this helpful legal advice treasure trove for farmers with resources on leasing, advice on common legal problems, and endless workshops to build a legally resilient farm business.
- Exclusive Members only Farm Tours – Starting in the fall of 2021, we will be offering some in person farm tours in our most popular regions of the state. Members can stay tuned for event announcements for their area in September.
