OSU has COVID-19 resources for small farmers

The Oregon State University Small Farms Program has a website devoted to resources to help small farmers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Access to credible information is important during any public health crisis,” according to the site. “Faculty in the OSU Center for Small Farms and Community Food systems are working with community partners to provide current information that is relevant for small farms and local food systems.”

The site provides information about the virus itself — how it’s spread, safety practices and how to deal with employees during the outbreak. It also provides information about financial resources and ways farmers can change their businesses to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by the outbreak.
