Our Vision

Friends of Family Farmers builds a strong and united voice for Oregon’s independent family farmers, food advocates, and concerned citizens who are working to foster the type of agriculture that respects the land, treats animals humanely, sustains local communities, and provides a viable livelihood for family farmers.

It is our belief that every person — urban and agrarian, farmer and eater — has the ability to make choices that can help regenerate our food system.

Our Mission

Friends of Family Farmers is the voice for Oregon family farmers who responsibly steward their land and feed our communities. We promote sensible policies, programs, and regulations that protect and expand the ability of family farmers and ranchers to run successful land-based enterprises while providing safe and nutritious food for all Oregonians.
