Community by Design LLC is a cooperative set up to support small farms and local agriculture.

Community by Design LLC has a 60-acre farm in Sherwood and a vision to do something much bigger for the local food and sustainable agriculture movements in Oregon.

A small farm incubator, Community by Design is set up as a cooperatively owned entity that will lease farmland and provide food processing facilities to ag-related startups.
