Amanda F. is a 21-year-old junior at Oregon State University majoring in Animal Sciences and Agriculture.

Amanda is the epitome of a go-getter, diving into all aspects of running a farm and not just the raising of animals and growing of crops. She also is learning the business side so that her farm will be profitable.

Amanda started on this path as an 8-year-old raising chickens and selling eggs. As she grew so did her small farm. From raising rabbits to growing raspberries to breeding cattle.

Amanda carries a 4.0 GPA. She is involved in every club on campus that will help her advance her goals of owning a farm, as well as educating farmers and ranchers on the new technology and practices, even change policy that affects farms and ranches…but don’t think she is all business all the time…Amanda creates and teaches country line dancing as well as running marathons.

Amanda has proven that she is a well-rounded individual and through her effort to be a farmer/rancher gives back to society every day we go to the grocery store.

We are glad to sponsor her education.
