Friends of Family Farmers
Friends of Family Farmers advances policies and programs that protect, promote and sustain resilient and economically viable community agricultural systems in Oregon.
Bottom Line for Portland
Not everyone is a farmer, but everyone eats! Friends of Family Farmers work helps farmers all over our state, including many in the northern Willamette Valley who sell products in Portland, get the technical assistance, community support, and advocacy necessary to thrive. Thanks to our efforts to build a healthier, more localized food system in Oregon, farmers can bring more great food to farmers markets, local grocery stores, and CSA boxes around the Portland area and give people access to food choices that embody their values of equity and environmental stewardship.
I support Friends of Family Farmers because they are action-oriented in tackling the issues facing small Oregon farmers. Not only are they their voice in Salem, but have created a space for conversation and resource sharing amongst small farmers. Their focus on advocacy, connecting consumers to local producers, and effort in keeping food dollars within our communities is why I am an ally of Friends of Family Farmers.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Friends of Family Farmers has been undergoing an organizational DEI overhaul since the end of 2019. Through consistent and committed work by our board and staff under the guidance of DEI consultants Capacity Building Partnerships, we have added an equity lens to all our programming including expanding technical assistance for BIPOC land seekers in the Farm Link program, uplifting BIPOC voices in our InFARMation programming. We also reviewed our internal policies, our compensation structure including benefits, and our employee handbook to identify and remove barriers to BIPOC folks seeking opportunities with us and make FoFF a more equitable workplace. We are proud to say that our staff of 6 is now 35% BIPOC as opposed to all white only 2 years ago.
