InFARMation is an educational and community building event created by Friends of Family Farmers that has taken place in Portland since 2009. These events connect eaters and farmers around the most important issues impacting healthy local food systems and socially responsible agriculture in Oregon. The events are always free to attend. 

After a one-year hiatus, we are bringing back our InFARMation programs to the Portland area this summer and fall with a focus on pasture-raised meat and dairy products! Download the poster here.

Panelists for these educational events will include farmers, chefs, processors, butchers, doctors, and policymakers. Stay tuned for specifics, but mark your calendars for the following InFARMation programs:
