Submit your own story!

Harvest began earlier and so has our #OriginalStewards project- giving us an opportunity to have our members share their own #OriginalStewards story. If you have a story of stewardship, legacy, and sustainability on your farm (and want to briefly share) please reach out to Shanna. We encourage you to submit your own video sharing your #Original story.

Videos should be:

·Authentic – in the field, tractor, truck or shop is great!

·Around 2 minutes

·Include your name, generation of farming, location and what makes you an #OriginalSteward.

All entries have the chance to be entered in to win a complimentary Tri-State Convention registration AND be featured in videos at the Tri-State Convention.

Producers are the lifeblood to our industry and food supply.

They are the ‘Original Stewards’ of the land, continuing to implement new and innovative processes and practices to use fewer inputs while producing even higher quality product and ensuring the long-term health of the land. It is, after all, our legacy. However, wheat producers are not often recognized for those dedicated farm stewardship practices. It is a well-known fact folks like to eat, however not all know the struggles producers face getting food to the table. With a decreasing budget, workforce, resources, and land, being able to adapt and change with the environment is critical.

Why do we need this?

We have to share our stories.

The #OriginalStewards project will produce dynamic visual materials to help those less familiar with farming practices understand how farmers act as stewards of the land. Online tools are more popular than ever, and we need to share our stories. High-quality video content will highlight stewardship practices used by Oregon Wheat farmers. These include ranging from modernization utilizing state-of-the-art technology such as GPS, to cover crops and crop rotation in areas that can provide benefit, to a variety of options in farming practices including no-till, to ensuring efficient product usage. We will develop current educational and informational material to be accessible through online platforms.

Help us in producing material that can reach the audiences that might not realize where their food comes from, and how hard producers work to get it to their table.
