Our newest farmer education program is coming up in December! Join us for the first session on 12/8 a deep dive into soils, what it means to promote soil health in your pastures and how to make the most of soil tests. Participants are then encouraged to get a soil test done and bring the results to the second session for advice and interpretation by Dr. Lane. The second session will be scheduled in January 2021 based on a poll of participants. Learn more and register at the link below.

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!

Become an OPN Member

Membership for farmers and ranchers is free at this time, and those accepted receive benefits that connect them to their fellow pastured producers, connect them to existing resources and help promote their farm businesses. Some examples of these benefits are our quarterly newsletter, a producer-only listserve, inclusion in Oregon’s first-ever, statewide pastured producer directory, branding tools and customized farm profiles on our website.

If you are a producer and are interested in becoming an official Pasture Partner, please visit our OPN Application page for directions. If you are an “aggregator” (you sell pasture-raised products produced by others) then you will need to fill out the OPN Aggregator Application. For more information, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
