Meet your local farmers! Learn about Southern Oregon’s abundant local food system on the Rogue Valley Farm Tour on July 14, 2019. Visit multiple farms around the valley and participate in a variety of activities from tastings to field tours. This annual event is organized by your local food co-ops, Ashland Food Co-op and Medford Food Co-op. The goal of the Rogue Valley Farm Tour is to increase the overall interaction between community members and local growers, in order to garner more support for locally produced food. By providing residents the opportunity to learn about where local food comes from, how it is grown, and by whom, we can grow community, and in turn, economic prosperity for our area.

We are currently seeking volunteers to assist farmers the day of the event. If you are interested in lending a local farmer a hand, please complete our Farm Tour Volunteer Application.
