Meet Our Farmers #5

Meet your NWPA Growers Farmers #5

2024 Farm Sharepng

NWPA Growers is a cooperative of farmers who raise good food using organic methods. In the last couple of years, several of our veggie growers have left us due to various personal reasons, but that left a gaping hole in our produce offerings.  

This is the fifth installment to introduce you to our farmers. 

Bushel & a Peck Farm

Eric and Amy Philson operate Bushel & a Peck Farm along with our youngest children. Our children are the third generation to work our 190-acre farm near Mercer, and our homeschool curriculum centers around farm life.  The main crop sold through NWPA Growers is maple syrup and maple products from our woods. We are also the main supplier of pastured eggs, and you can find some of our garden produce in the CSA at times.

We raise grass fed cattle and sheep along with pastured chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys. We currently have almost 100 cattle and 130 sheep that are rotated to a new paddock every day or two at four different farms that we manage. We are currently building an on-farm USDA processing facility while we build up our herd, so our meat will be available to NWPA Growers customers sometime in the future.

Besides farming, Amy is also the General Manager of NWPA Growers. She's the face behind almost every email that you receive and the organizer of all that is CSA.

 Duncan's Backyard Farm

Things are always "buzzing" at John Duncan's farm and apiary in Grove City! John raises 3 to 4 hives of honeybees on a 1-acre rural plot of land at his house.  He supplies the honey for our CSA.

John grows most of his own vegetables and plans to expand his growing for NWPA Growers this year.
