Membership Information

Membership for Growers and Crafters

If you are a “grower” (farmer/rancher) or “crafter” (food/beverage processor) working to provide food for our community, the Willamette Valley and beyond, sign up for our Promotional Membership and gain visibility for your products with local and regional audiences.

Membership Criteria

  • 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.)
  • Your business must be registered  with the state of Oregon’s corporate division and must have an EIN registered with the IRS.
  • Sustainable agricultural and business practices are at the heart of Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted. However, we know there are many interpretations of both. We believe that consumers deserve full transparency, therefore we ask that member businesses pledge to share their farming, processing and business practices in their member profiles.

Fill out a preliminary application here.
