This is a great way to find land in Oregon available to farm! It’s called the iFarm program! Enjoy!
How iFarm Works
To contact any of the landowners or farmers on iFarm, you must first complete a questionnaire describing your opportunity (for landholders) or your goals, experience, and plans (for landseekers). Once completed and approved, this information is entered into our online database (online and pdf questionnaires are below) and you may then contact any of our iFarm participants.
To search our database, click on the link above, then select the type of iFarm participant you are looking for and click either “View Listings” or “Advanced Search Options.” “View Listings” displays every listing in the category that you’ve checked and “Advanced Search Options ” allows you to narrow your search by region. Listings are displayed in order from oldest first to newest at the end.
To contact a participant, go to their listing and click on the words “click here” at the bottom of the page, under the “Tools” heading. That generates an email to iFarm@friendsoffamilyfarmers.org. We will then give that participant your contact information and let them know that you would like to speak with them. It is up to them to contact you back.
Qualifications: Anyone who is serious about finding or offering land to farm may participate, so long as we understand that they do currently, and intend to continue to, abide by all applicable ordinances and laws.
Confidentiality: iFarm never displays our members contact information publicly or shares it with other organizations, and we do not give out this information to other participants without your express permission.
Current Listings: All listings on iFarm are active, to the best of our knowledge, regardless of the date they were created.
Fee: iFarm is a free service, although we encourage participants to become members of Friends of Family Farmers.
