InFARMations are Back!

Friends of Family Farmers has hosted InFARMations since 2009, bringing eaters and farmers together to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing our local food systems. While these have been held mostly in Portland over the years, we are excited to announce a new slate of InFARMations in Salem, Corvallis, and Bend, along with Portland, that will cover a wide range of topics.
