Small Farms, Livestock & Forage

Oregon State University Extension Service provides research-based educational programming and resources to help commercial and non-commercial farm entrepreneurs and 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 programs, educational workshops, materials, consultation and resources are provided to help clientele become better informed.
