This year we are launching a new Access To Capital program, designed to give an economic boost to local food & farm businesses.

Our vision is of a strong farm community that provides healthy food, economic opportunities, and fertile ground to grow our rural heritage on the North Oregon Coast.

Our mission is to support a healthy agricultural community in Tillamook and Clatsop counties by keeping farmland productive, providing resources to agriculturalists, and helping new farmers to enter the economy.

NVFT, as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to preserving farmland in our region and increasing local food production by:

Owning, renting or leasing property in order to operate or partner to operate farm businesses or to rent, lease or sell to farmers and farm related businesses.

Holding easements in order to preserve agricultural or ecological features of private land.

Providing agriculture related educational experiences to farmers, landholders, community members, and the public at large.

Providing and facilitating services that encourage a sustainable agricultural economy on the North Oregon Coast.
