Did you know that 98% of farms in Oregon are family owned an operated?? Well the Agri-Business Concil of Oregon is spreading the word that families in Oregon truly can say with pride, “I am Oregon Agriculture!” The Agri-Business Council of Oregon is an organization that works to help reduce the gap between our farming families and our more urban neighbors. I wanted to show you two new videos they have put out to help in accomplishing their goals in Oregon.
The first campaign is called “I am Oregon Agriculture” This video is going to be airing on KATU starting today! It features many farming families and lots of facts about Oregon agriculture.
This next video was actually shot completely on our farm, although we can’t claim any of the very cute kiddos in the video, it’s just a small bit of information that students get to take away when participating in Adopt a Farmer (the second great program Agribusiness Council of Oregon sponsors!)
I encourage you to hit up their website http://www.OregonFresh.net and see what is going on. They have a great blog on there featuring many family farmers, recipes, and tips on where to find all this delicious Oregon grown food!
