Washington State University's Small Farms Team provides research-based information and educational programs for farmers, consumers, decision-makers, and others involved in local food systems.
Our goals are to:
- Build public support for agriculture
- Preserve Washington farmland for food and fiber production
- Help farmers adopt practices that are sustainable—economically, socially and environmentally
- Unify farmers and consumers in developing local markets and community food access
The team is a statewide affiliation of professionals from WSU, state agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
The Small Farms Program is a program of the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources in the WSU College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences. The program focuses on education resources for farmers, outreach to communities, and team-based research with farmers.
The Small Farms Team and the Small Farms Program are dedicated to helping sustainable, community-based agricultural systems throughout Washington. We are here to help. Please explore the resources on this web site and contact us if we can help you further.
