Mission: We are a grassroots organization promoting sensible policies, programs, and regulations that protect and expand the ability of Oregon’s family farmers to run a successful land-based enterprise while providing safe and nutritious food for all Oregonians. Through education, advocacy, and community organizing, Friends of Family Farmers supports socially and environmentally responsible family-scale agriculture and citizens working to shape healthy rural and urban communities.
Target demographics: farmers and citizens to shape and support socially and environmentally responsible family-scale agriculture in Oregon.
Friends of Family Farmers (FoFF) has grown to be the state's largest organization representing family-scale agriculture in Oregon. The FoFF staff is a team of organized, creative and passionate people who are driven to ensure that family farmers can remain economically viable while not compromising the environment, the welfare of the animals or the quality of lives for their neighbors. I am honored and humbled to be part of such an amazing team of people. I believe that the climate for family farmers in Oregon is a better as a direct result of the work of this great organization!
