Oct 17-31

We are excited to bring this event to the Portland metro area on Sunday, November 8th from 11:00 am-2:00 pm at Rigler Elementary – 5401 NE Prescott St.

Fill Your Pantry provides an excellent opportunity for community members to purchase bulk quantities of staple and storage crops directly from farmers. Stock those pantry shelves for the winter with dry beans, grains, nuts, honey, root veggies, garlic, onions, winter squash and pasture raised meats.

Support your local farmers, stock your shelves, and strengthen the food system all in one go!

Online pre-ordering will occur between October 17th- October 31st. Note that not all vendors will arrive with extra goods the day of the event, and some will sell out, so the best way to get what you’re looking for is to order online!

Participating vendors include: Dancing Roots Farm, Deck Family Farm, Fiddlehead Farm, Flying Coyote Farm, Goat Mountain Pastured Meats, Harcombe Farms, Lonesome Whistle Farm, Our Table Cooperative, Pitkin Winterrowd Farm, Queener Farm, Sun Gold Farm, Nehalem River Ranch, Sauvie Island Organics, and Super Natural Farm.

 

Request for Proposals for iFarm Oregon Redevelopment: Updated!

The average age of farmers in the state of Oregon is nearly 60 and the Oregon Department of Agriculture predicts that 25%-50% of Oregon’s farmland may change hands within the next decade. In response to these trends, FoFF created iFarm Oregon, the state’s only land linking service. iFarm offers listings for landowners looking to sell or lease farmland, and farmers looking for land, partnerships, or investment opportunities. Since 2009, over 900 land listings have been posted on iFarm, and more than 60 participants have connected through the service to find land!

FoFF is currently looking for an experienced web developer to redesign the iFarm database. We’ve recently made some changes to the original RPF. Please click here for the new, updated RFP. The deadline for submissions is November 9th, 2015.
