A listing of some upcoming OSU Extension Service sponsored events that may be of interest to small-scale farmers in the Willamette Valley. 

Horses & Mud -  December 6, 2016

The rain is here and farms are muddy. If you are a horse owner and the realization of several months of mucky barnyards, paddocks and pastures is driving you crazy, consider joining other’s in the same situation and make a plan to change your situation for the future.   This class will be at the Lane County Extension office in Eugene.


Winter Farming Series -  January 25, 2017

You’ll have a chance to visit with farmers that are experienced with winter production to get perspectives from the field. Our goal is to support you with testing out winter production on your farm to determine whether it is a feasible enterprise for your operation. Classes are spread out over a whole year and timed so that you can apply what you learn for your winter plantings in 2016.

Classes will meet at the Polk County Extension Office (289 E Ellendale Ave Suite 301, Dallas, OR 97338) or at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center (15210 NE Miley Road Aurora, OR 97002)
