$2.1 million in grants is being distributed to farmers for National Agriculture Day.
Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., announced that 11 Oregon farmers received the grant Tuesday, including one farm in Sisters.
Wyden says these grants are meant to “kick-start efforts for family farms to innovate and continue to compete in a global marketplace.”
The funds were made available through USDA Rural Development’s Value-Added Producer Grant Program.
