Call to Action: Farm Bill HB 2336

I really have been meaning to get a proper post up here on the blog.  January was unintentionally quiet on this space, and it felt good and fine, since the farm is at its quietest for that one beautiful, still month.  Since February blew in with a fresh breeze and a bit of upstart in our energies as we begin the work of the new season and start to see new growth on the ground, I have woken up many mornings in hopes of doing some writing, only to be needed elsewhere.  Soon.  I promise.

But today, I wanted to quickly call attention to a bill that is going to the house here in Oregon in just a few days:   HB 2336– The Direct Farm Marketing Bill.  Here is a link to some information and a bit written by Anthony Boutard from Ayers Creek Farm about it and where it is at now and what needs to be done.

We would like to urge you all to call your representatives and help move this forward.  It is a good bill, and will directly benefit us and many other Oregon farmers!!

Now back to work….
