Join OPN : We Are Grazed & Improved

Become an OPN Member!

The Oregon Pasture Network is a community of practice for livestock producers who raise animals on pasture. Whether you produce meat, dairy, eggs, or even wool, all types of animal producers are welcome. OPN members constantly strive to protect and promote the welfare of their animals, soil, air, and water resources. They also seek to help others do the same, by building a statewide community around these ideals. Read more about the Pasture Pledge to see if OPN is the right fit for your farm or ranch.

Membership for Oregon farmers and ranchers is free. Accepted producers receive benefits that connect them to their fellow pastured producers and existing resources, and promote their farm businesses. These benefits include: our quarterly newsletter, a producer-only listserv, inclusion in Oregon’s first-ever, statewide pastured producer directory, discounted pasture management classes with experts across the state, branding tools and customizable farm profiles on our website.  OPN provides a space for members to learn and grow, while promoting their businesses and bringing more customers into direct relationships with the animal farmers and ranchers in their communities.

If you are a producer interested in becoming a member of OPN, please complete Part One and Part Two of our OPN Application in entirety. If you sell pasture-raised products produced by others, OPN is also open to you. In that case, you will need to fill out the OPN Aggregator Application. For more information, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us to speak with the program manager directly.
