Welcome to the Oregon Pasture Network

The Oregon Pasture Network (OPN) is a program of Friends of Family Farmers, designed to support the growth of pasture-based farming in our state. OPN is a community of farmers, ranchers, food business owners and consumers who believe that sustainable, humane, pasture-raised, animal agriculture is the best way to produce animal products.

When farmers fill out an application and take the Pasture Network Pledge, they become a member of the Friends of Family Farmers community and together work to practice and promote agricultural practices that put a high value on family farms, animal welfare, public health, the planet and our local rural economies.

Pasture based agriculture cares for the animals and the planet.  Our member farms and ranches are committed to bringing the highest quality meat, eggs, dairy and other animal products directly to their communities.  Browse our listings to learn more about our farmers and their stories.  Support your local farmers and their families and find farmers in your area today!

IP13 Update & What Happens Next?

If you’re wondering…here’s the IP13 update and what happens next…. The Initiative Proposal 13 (aka IP13) is apparently “dead in the water”. Oregon farmers, fishers, hunters and those of us who support them can at least breathe a little bit for now, or at least until 2024 because the proponents of the Initiative Petition 13 […]

We Hear YOU! Farmer Voices on IP-13

Lately, there’s been a lot of talk in the farming community about the proposed ballot initiative called IP-13. This new threat that would put thousands of small scale, sustainable, and ethical farms out of business in Oregon. IP-13 is an Oregon ballot initiative that would effectively criminalize farming of food animals in the state by classifying their slaughter as aggravated assault. The initiative also redefines artificial insemination and castration as sexual assault. The petition would remove farmer exemptions from existing laws barring animal cruelty and target practices used for breeding livestock. We urge you NOT to sign the petition to put this measure on the ballot and tell your networks to do the same. Feel free to share the videos we’ve created by talking to pastured producers (like you).

Check out what Farmer Xavier has to say about how the proposed IP-13 initiative could impact his life, family and work!
