a land that provides

There is a rich tradition of agriculture in the Bitterroot Valley. From the orchard tracts to the extensive system of irrigation canals that turned what was once sage desert it into productive farmland, the legacy of the original homesteaders and pioneering entrepreneurs who first settled the valley endures.

While agriculture production has fallen off sharply in recent years, the opportunity still exists for the Bitterroot Valley to feed itself. Restoring our agricultural production capacity is an important step toward establishing economic security and building resilience into our community.

Join us in developing a vibrant agricultural economy that will ensure real food security for the Bitterroot Valley.
