Friends of Family Farmers

Friends of Family Farmers host InFARMation (and Beer!) each month in Portland.  This is an opportunity to bring the issues that Oregon family farmers face onto the radar of urban consumers, and the community in general.  The topic changes each month, but always focuses on the larger picture of the connection between food and farms in our state.  When eaters connect with farmers, it makes our food web stronger and real changes in our local food system are possible.
