Oregon farms open up through website

Oregon’s rich diversity of farms and farmer’s markets can now be explored digitally through a new website: Oregon Farm Explorer.

Oregon’s rich diversity of farms and farmer’s markets can now be explored digitally through a new website.

The Oregon Farm Explorer (http://oregonexplorer.info/farm) maps Oregon's rural and urban connections through an exploration of farms and markets using a variety of data collections, mapping tools, stories and other resources.

“The Oregon Farm Explorer presents a wonderful opportunity to learn about the bountiful food produced in Oregon,” said Anita Azarenko, head of Oregon State University’s horticulture department, “including what is raised here, where it is produced, and where to find it.”

The site allows visitors to find local, fresh, farm-grown produce, meats and cheeses with the Farmers’ Market Finder and its interactive maps, as well as to learn about agricultural and horticultural crops and the livestock and dairy industries that support Oregon’s economy.

The site highlights the Oregon Century Farm & Ranch Program and can trace the spread of agriculture through the establishment of farms and ranches. A specially designed viewer maps farms and ranches that have received century and sesquicentennial awards, and provides detailed information by county.

The Oregon Farm Explorer was developed as a collaborative effort of the OSU Libraries, Oregon University System's Institute for Natural Resources and the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences.  Oregon Explorer, a natural resources digital library, is a collaborative effort between OSU Libraries and the Institute for Natural Resources.
