As a specialty-crop state with many labor-intensive crops, like nursery products, vegetables, tree fruits, flowers, and berries, the availability of a legal, reliable workforce for farmers and ranches is top priority for Farm Bureau at the state and national level.

Marion County Farm Bureau President John Zielinski and Multnomah County Farm Bureau’s Angela Bailey are featured in short videos the #ReasonForReform website, explaining why, as farmers, they need comprehensive immigration reform ASAP.
