2018 Farmer and Rancher Listening Sessions

Since 2009, we have held biennial Listening Sessions with Oregon’s family farmers and ranchers, hearing from hundreds and hundreds of producers over the years. This process led to the Agricultural Reclamation Act and shapes our advocacy and program work. You can read our 2016 Listening Session Report and Policy Recommendations here.

We are now organizing our next round of Farmer and Rancher Listening Sessions, to be held through early 2018. You can RSVP at one of the links below to attend a Listening Session near you:
