NEWS FROM NWPAGC

WELCOME!

The Northwest Pennsylvania Growers Cooperative is a cooperative of farmers from Butler, Mercer, Lawrence, Crawford, and Venango counties dedicated to bringing you fresh, natural/organic, local produce every season of the year.
We are your local source for all-natural/organic produce, meats, honey, eggs.

Serving customers in Allegheny, Butler, Crawford, Erie, Lawrence, Mercer and Venango Counties!

Our produce comes from eighteen small family farms in northwestern Pennsylvania that use organic growing practices.  This means that they are organic in practice but don’t have certification – an expensive process that makes food with the organic label unaffordable for many – so they can keep their prices low for us.

 

2014 CSA has begun!  We are still accepting members.

New this year:

  • Longer CSA season (22 weeks instead of 20)
  • 2 weeks of vacation of your choice anytime during the season
  • Online payment through your checking account
  • 15 pickup locations throughout Northwest Pennsylvania

For more information about CSA, click here.

We are sold out of ground beef shares for this year.  Other types of shares are still available. 

When you sign up after CSA has begun, we will prorate the fee for missed weeks.

 

Support local farmers and enjoy farm-fresh foods!
