FAQs

What is a Food & Farm Community?

Our food and farm community is comprised of the farmers and ranchers who grow and raise our foods, the crafters who make meals and products from local foods, and the consumers who invest their money in the local food economy.

What does HDFFA do to support this system?

HDFFA collaborates with local non-profits, for-profits, government entities, and the general public to increase awareness of the importance of local foods; provide support to farmers and ranchers; and to increase local food access for everyone – regardless of income – in Central Oregon.

Can I be an HDFFA Partner?

HDFFA partners include farmers, ranchers, and food businesses throughout Central Oregon who pledge to the values stated at the bottom of this webpage. Partners also include nonprofits, agencies, and businesses that promote the values listed in our pledge through supporting our local Food & Farm community. Unsure if your business is a good fit? Send us an email at info@hdffa.org

Why do Farmers and Ranchers get more benefits?

At HDFFA a strong robust local food system is our utmost priority. In order to make this dream a reality HDFFA acquires funding from a variety of sources including individual donations, national agencies, statewide organizations, and family foundations. Currently, through the USDA Beginner Farmer Rancher Development Program, HDFFA is able to staff a full-time Farm and Ranch Support Manager dedicated to supporting our local Farmers and Ranchers. Through this program we are able to offer expanded opportunities to our Farm and Ranch Partners. In return, we are also able to work closer with Food Businesses who are looking to make further connections with local food producers and increase local sourcing; a win-win for all!
