FoFF in the News

DSCF37For recent coverage of FoFF in the press, please view our ‘In the Media’ page.  Below is some more historical coverage dating back a few years:

The Oregonian quoted FoFF in their article about a dairy polluting the surrounding community of Butteville in their article “Manure Smells Like Trouble …” on June 1, 2010.

The Oregonian published an editorial on April 21, 2010 by Southern Oregon farmer and ARA Delegate Ken Muller of Rogue Valley Brambles Farm that reported on the ARA Delegation meeting in February, and announced that farmers across Oregon are “looking to reclaim what should be the right of every American: to produce and consume the food we want.”

The Oregonian (Washington County) reported on farmers who lease the land on which they farm, and interviewed FoFF about iFarm Oregon’s land matching program in this article on April 19, 2010.

Portland Upside has published articles profiling FoFF grassroots organizer Michele Knaus on February 5, 2010, and ARA Delegate and Portland farmer Donna Smith of Your Backyard Farmer on April 5, 2010.

The Source Weekly (Bend) reported on the attempt of the Oregon Farm Bureau to paint FoFF founder and Board member Kendra Kimbirauskas as “anti-farmer” in their article “Who’s Afraid of the Family Farmer” on December 9, 2009.

Living Culture, a monthly television series that showcases food and culture in Oregon, produced a show on FoFF’s Food and Farm Forum in 2008.
