How to classify your property as a farm?

Asked May 10, 2017, 1:01 PM EDT

I am selling items grown on my site (farm). I am now getting up to production where I can sell some of my items grown to some wholesalers but I need to be certified organic. I want to start getting grant initiatives and tax breaks as a farm. What do I have to do to be called a farm? I am in a multi-use Coos County Forest/Farm. Who do I talk to and who can help me get my permits for a farm production room? Thank you

Hi, Will you email me directly at cassie.bouska@oregonstate.edu ? I've got some info I can share with you. Include your phone number if you'd prefer a call back. I'm out of the office at meetings, etc for about a week, so email will probably be best. Cassie
