Thanks to everyone who completed our 2018 Farmer and Food System Stakeholder Surveys!
Since 2009, we have held dozens of Listening Sessions around the state to hear from Oregon’s family farmers and ranchers. As part of this process, we ask farmers, ranchers, and food system stakeholders to fill out surveys to tell us the top issues they are concerned about.
This extensive process helped create our Agricultural Reclamation Act (ARA), a ‘roadmap’ for sound agricultural policies written by and for Oregon’s socially and environmentally responsible family farmers and ranchers. The ARA and our Listening Sessions and surveys continue to shape our advocacy and program priorities.
Stay tuned, as we plan to publish the final results from our 2018 Farmer and Rancher Listening Sessions in the coming months.
In the meantime, you can read our 2016 Listening Session Report and Policy Recommendations here.
