Western Region Agricultural
Stress Assistance Program (WRASAP)
The Farm Collaborative
We manage a farmer tool library with specialty farm equipment for rent including a potato harvester, walk behind tractor, All-Crop harvester, and more. We offer a housing library renting out tiny homes to be used for seasonal on-farm housing (must be approved by each county). Our farmer incubator program consults people that would like to try farming as a profession. After a year as an intern on the farm, incubators will learn about crop planning, business planning, and seed ordering and implement their own plot and business plan. Incubators will be able to use farm equipment and infrastructure and learn about land leases and land opportunities in the area.

1,000 Friends of Oregon Farmer Advisory Committee
“In order for Oregon agriculture to continue to thrive, it is necessary to maintain the land base on which the agricultural and forestry industries depend. 1000 Friends of Oregon and the farmers, ranchers, and foresters who comprise its Farmer Advisory Committee, share the belief that the best way to maintain the land base is through an effective land use planning program that builds livable urban areas and rural communities, protects family farms and forests, and conserves natural areas.
Participation opportunities include:
Training to understand the statewide land use planning program
Timely communications about working lands-related legislation and agency rule-making
Support that simplifies engagement with decision-makers to improve working land protections and prevent further rollbacks
Technical assistance with land use issues in your county
Involvement in working lands-policy creation at 1000 Friends of Oregon
Bi-annual meetings of the Farmer Advisory Committee”
