Oregon State University Extension Small Farms Program
The Small Farms Program serves commercial small farms as well as non-commercial small acreage landowners. Our focus embraces both organic/biological and conventional farming systems and emphasizes five areas:
- Commercial small farms
- Small acreage landowners
- Beginning farmers
- Community food systems
- Specialty & niche crops
Contact Rachel Suits at 541-386-3343 for small farming questions
Monthly farm tours during the growing season on the 4th Tuesday each month. This project is in collaboration with the Rockford Grange that allow farmers to network and learn from each other. Please stay tuned for the 2017 schedule.
