Small Farms/Small Acreage
The Small Farms/Small Acreage program in Central Oregon provides research-based educational programming and resources to help commercial and non-commercial small farm entrepreneurs and small acreage landowners achieve their goals.
Central Oregon's landscape is rapidly changing as properties are divided into smaller units. People move to the country to enjoy a rural lifestyle and are interested in learning how to be good stewards of their land. Some also pursue the idea of "niche" farming. They are exploring options of what can be produced on their land as well as learning about specialty markets, production practices and business and financial planning.
Through the OSU Extension Service Small Farms/Small Acreage program, educational workshops, materials, consultation and resources are provided to help clientele become better informed.

These web pages have been created to help disseminate information of use to people with small farms or rural property. This is a cooperative effort. Some of the information comes from people like you. The "Small Farm Resource" site is merely playing the part of the organizer and repository.
