No Matter Big or Small, Every Grower Matters
The Pacific Northwest Vegetable Association represents all vegetable growers and supports from Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. To the Association, the smallest speciality crop growers is just as important as the largest corporate farm as each fulfills a specific need in the marketplace.
Our board is compromised of all volunteers that are here to give a voice to the vegetable growers of the Pacific Northwest.
