Join Friends of Family Farmers and our partner organizations for this fun day at the State Capitol and bring your voice to the small farm and local food issues that are important to all Oregonians – urban and rural, producers and eaters alike.  Let’s demonstrate the strength, vibrancy and contributions of our farm and food community to Oregon’s economy together!
