A Commitment to our Food & Farm Community

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.

Farmer Rancher specific benefits

  • FREE access to educational workshops and events on production and business best practices to improve the overall success of your operation
  • Opportunity to participate in our food access programs such as Grow & Give, VeggieRx, and Fresh Harvest Kits
  • Funding opportunities (when available) such as the Season Extender Grant and Farm and Ranch Resiliency Award
  • One-on-one support from the Farm and Ranch Support Manager to help you connect with technical and financial resources and assistance
  • Farmer/Rancher Advisory Committee made up of Partners who provide insight, observations, and feedback about HDFFA’s programmatic work
  • Alliance with a network of over 65 local farmers and ranchers throughout the Central Oregon agricultural community working collaboratively to overcome barriers, offer peer support, and advance the local food system

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!
