@Lagunitas Brewing Community Room
Tickets are $20 for the general public and $15 for farmers. Price of tickets include pizza & salad from Dove Vivi, one drink ticket, Ruby Jewel ice cream, chocolate, music, a raffle ticket, and a donation to FoFF! Additional drink tickets may be purchased for $4. Ages 21 and over. Money raised at this party will fund Friends of Family Farmers' Urban Outreach Program which includes events like InFARMation, Fill Your Pantry, hands on workshops, farm visits, and much more. It is important that FoFF facilitates educational experiences for urban consumers so that they know who is growing their food and, with that knowledge, feel empowered to vocalize the kind of food system they want to see in Oregon. We have some awesome silent auction items available for the taking, too! Products have been donated from: Patagonia, Breitenbush Hot Springs, Equal Exchange, Coava Coffee, Worthy Brewing, Duck Pond Cellars, Dove Vivi Pizza, and more yet to come!

Since January 2009, Friends of Family Farmers has hosted 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. Training the Next Generation of Oregon Farmers and Ranchers: Despite the resurgence of interest in agriculture, the availability of land, resources and educational opportunities for new and young farmers/ranchers remains limited. However, like FoFF, there are people working hard to address these needs with creative solutions. Join us as we highlight some fantastic work being done to provide training opportunities and tools for Oregon’s next generation of family farmers.
