SMALL BUSINESS HAPPENINGS: SolWest Fair looking for vendors for summer event

SolWest Fair looking for vendors for summer event

The SolWest Fair committee is seeking vendors for its 16th annual event June 27-29. 

The SolWest Fair has moved from John Day to La Grande this year and will take place at the Union County Fairgrounds. The SolWest Fair theme is “Renewable Energy and Sustainable Living.” 

Besides numerous workshops on renewable energy and sustainable living, SolWest Fair will have a sociability supper, breakfasts, kids’ workshops, an informative incentives “energy scramble” with utilities companies and state agencies, solar tours, beer garden and music. Oregon’s First Lady, Cylvia Hayes, will be the keynote speaker.

The fair will include attendees and participants from all over the Pacific Northwest, including Montana, Idaho, Washington, California and Oregon.

If your wares fit in with the theme of renewable energy and/or sustainable living, and you would like to apply for a vendor booth or space, call Jan Alberts at 541-975-2411 ext. 5 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

USDA announces sign-up date for disaster assistance programs

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Administrator Juan Garcia announced that farmers and ranchers can now sign up for disaster assistance programs, reestablished and strengthened by the 2014 Farm Bill. 

The Livestock Indemnity Program and the Livestock Forage Disaster Program will provide payments to eligible producers for livestock deaths and grazing losses that have occurred since the expiration of the livestock disaster assistance programs in 2011, and including calendar years 2012, 2013 and 2014. 

Enrollment is also under way for producers with losses covered by the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees, and Farm-Raised Fish Program and the Tree Assistance Program in 2011, when the programs expired, through 2014.

“These programs are going to provide a lot of needed help to Oregon’s farmers and ranchers. All producers who experienced losses are encouraged to bring records documenting those losses to their local FSA county office,” said Robert Perry, USDA-FSA acting state executive director in Oregon. 

Producers are also encouraged to contact their county office ahead of time to schedule an appointment.
