March 15th is Family Farmer & Rancher Day at the State Capitol
Come to Salem for the Family Farmer and Rancher Day at the Capitol on March 15th. Talk to your legislators about the importance of local agriculture, support our farmers and ranchers, and help create the kind of food system you would like to see in our state.
Join Friends of Family Farmers and our partner organizations for this fun day at the State Capitol and bring your voice to the issues that are important to all Oregonians – urban, rural, producers and eaters. The strength of our community is demonstrated every time we come together to ensure that our food is grown close to home, by people we know and trust.
