Membership Criteria

Sustainable agricultural and business practices are at the heart of Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted. However, we know there are many interpretations of both. If not participating in certified programs, it is expected that all members will be actively working toward improving their sustainability practices. We believe that consumers deserve full transparency, therefore we ask that businesses interested in becoming members pledge to share their farming, processing and business practices in their member profiles.

To become a member

  • Your business or farm/ranch must be located in the Willamette Valley and owned by an Oregon resident. (Exceptions may be made for businesses started by an Oregon resident where the main production facilities remain rooted in the Willamette Valley.)
  • Business must be a registered organization with the state’s corporate division and must have an EIN (not social security number) registered with the IRS. Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted memberships are not available for individuals.
  • In the spirit of full transparency, your business agrees to share farming, processing and business practices in your application and your member profile.
  • Complete the online application. After submitting your application, you will be contacted by a member of our advisory team.
