Workshop helps Oregon’s working lands change hands

In Oregon, 10.5 million acres, or 64%, of the state’s farm and range land is expected to change hands over the next 20 years as the average farmer and rancher reaches retirement age. For landowners who have questions about passing their land on to the next generation, and for beginning farmers and ranchers wondering how they can access affordable land, the Oregon nonprofit Rogue Farm Corps is convening a day-long event on February 13 in Pendleton.
