Who are we?

You Pick Farms is a Social Purpose Corp based in Washington State. We had our start as a passion project for local farms and produce in 2018.

Our mission is to support and promote family owned and operated farms, farmers markets, and small businesses by helping them connect to local communities and resources. In doing so, we seek to strengthen local communities and provide assistance to small businesses and producers, encouraging closer community ties, and knowledge and access to fresher, healthier produce and food options.

If you're interested in getting involved with YPF, we have several ongoing and future projects and would love to hear from you!

Meet the Team!

Our volunteer team of creatives and agriculture enthusiasts, like the farmers and small businesses we support, are as diverse as they come. We believe that diversity is a strength, and that what unites us will always far exceeds that which divides. We share a passion for creating a world where neighbors know each other and small farms and businesses thrive within their local communities. We believe in supporting and promoting access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and other yummy food products and in the health benefits of natural, locally sourced options.
