Oregon Tilth Offices Closed for Veterans Day

In recognition of Veterans Day, our offices will be closed on Friday, November 10, 2017.

Oregon Tilth celebrated farmer-veterans throughout 2017 by sharing their stories. We appreciate those that grow hazelnuts, raise sheep and teach fellow veterans to farm.

Like any new farmer, veterans face the same challenges of learning farming techniques, finding land and setting up business and financial systems. Just over a decade ago our partner, the Farmer Veteran Coalition, began to help veterans find meaningful jobs in farming, while our country benefits from a new generation of farmers to feed it.

In support of our military veterans and the growing movement to help veterans choosing a path in sustainable agriculture, Oregon Tilth exempts any farm from paying base certification fees that is owned or operated by a military veteran. This waiver of the certification fee is granted to new applicants as well as renewing farmers that can demonstrate that he and/or she is a qualified military veteran.

Our offices will resume normal hours on Monday, November 13, 2017.
