The average age of farmers in Oregon is 58 years old. Without a plan to get new farmers onto the land with access to education, financing and markets, we stand to lose 25-50% of the land that is currently in agriculture production in the next decade. In response, Friends of Family Farmers has developed a land and resource connection service with an online database to help Oregon grow the next generation of family farmers.
How Does iFarm Work?
Landseekers and landholders must first complete a questionnaire. Once completed and approved, this information is entered into the iFarm database, after which landseekers and landholders may begin to contact any of the iFarm participants.
How to search iFarm listings
Once you’ve found a landholder or landseeker you would like to contact, please send an email to FoFF. We will then send an email to connect you with the owner of that listing!
Qualifications: Anyone who is serious about finding or offering land to farm may participate, so long as we understand that they do currently, and intend to continue to, abide by all applicable ordinances and laws.
Confidentiality: iFarm never displays our members contact information publicly or shares it with other organizations, and we do not give out this information to other participants without your express permission.
Current Listings: All listings on iFarm are active, to the best of our knowledge, regardless of the date they were created
Fee: iFarm is a free service, although we encourage participants to become members of Friends of Family Farmers.
Although it is legal in the state of Oregon to grow hemp and marijuana with certain permits, cultivation of these plants is currently still illegal at the federal level. As a non-profit organization, Friends of Family Farmers would like to avoid any potential legal and tax-status ramifications for facilitating the cultivation of these crops. Therefore, at this point, Friends of Family Farmers has decided not to use iFarm to post listings seeking or advertising land to produce hemp and marijuana.
