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.



The annual PNVA Conference is being held November 17th-18th, 2021 at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, WA.
