Late last year NABC announced that it would be expanding its services to help the Latino community. We strive to help provide the opportunity for farmers to increase farm profitability, to evolve, innovate and flourish through value added products, and to advance the legacy of thriving and lucrative agriculture for future generations. Recently this occurred through a partnership with the Puget Sound Food Hub Cooperative. The farmer owned cooperative’s purpose is to grow market access and build economic sustainability for northwest Washington farms while increasing access to locally grown food for all.
In a collaborative effort between Kate Smith, Northwest Small and Latino Farms Educator from WSU Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources/Skagit County Extension, Jade Vantreese, Sales & Marketing Coordinator from PSFH and Alex Perez, Project Manager from NABC the Cabrera’s family were assisted to join the PSFH. Cabrera Farm will provide a great variety of organic produce through PSFH. Their operation produces a variety of high-quality, organic vegetables including zucchini, winter and summer squash, cucumbers, green beans, cabbage, and lettuce.
We are proud that because of this program we can share stories like this which are happening across Western Washington.
