Oregon Farm Bureau Boosts Local Food Choices

Nelsen Family Farm
Nelson Family Farm on the road in Brookings. The misspelling is now deliberate.

The drive to get people to eat food grown near their homes continues to produce new initiatives.  The Oregon Farm Bureau, which already celebrated agricultural producers through "Oregon's Bounty," just added a new searchable directory to the online publication. 

One of the beneficiaries is the Nelsen family of the Illinois Valley.  Maybe you saw their farm stand, advertising "Sweet Cron."  The misspelling certainly draws attention.  Linda Nelsen, a member of the Josephine County Farm Bureau whose family runs the farm, visits with Anne Marie Moss of the statewide federation.
