Natalie is our Administrative Director and Oregon Farm Link Program Manager. As the OFL Program manager, Natalie is working to help connect farmers seeking land with folks who have land available for farming. She is based in Central Oregon and also does organizing to make sure decision makers hear from farmers and ranchers east of the Cascades. Natalie grew up in Oregon and spent much of her time on horseback, competing in 4-H and high school equestrian team, helping her family grow and preserve food, and camping. After graduating from Oregon State University, Natalie moved east to Central Oregon where she became increasingly involved with the local food system before joining FoFF in 2018. In her free time Natalie enjoys all things outdoors with her partner and their dog Lida as well as gardening and cooking delicious food.
