The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

Farm tours for military vets

 

August 17, 2022



The Oregon State University Extension Small Farms Program will hold a series of farm tours for military veterans in the Willamette Valley through Sept. 10.

The tours,hosted on four different farms owned or managed by veterans, are for veterans that are currently farming or interested in learning about farming. Learn about low-input fencing and water management, equipment and infrastructure funding, mentorship, and community connections while connecting and networking with other veteran farmers in the area.

The first tour will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, hosted by Jacob Mogler, who raises sheep in the Albany area.

The events are open to veterans, and are free to attend. Registration is required as there is limited capacity.
