WWAA works on behalf of those that farm the fertile soils of north Puget Sound and Washington’s greater agricultural community. Our organization contributes to members and industry through natural resource policy and science work at county, state, and federal levels.  As the pressures and requirements of agriculture evolve, so do our services.

Our non-profit cooperative was created in 1944 by farmers to negotiate and execute their contracts with vegetable processing companies. Although we no longer work on vegetable contract negotiations, our mission remains unchanged. Our primary function is to provide services to the entire agricultural community, and this support now comes in a variety of capacities.​ We build land use policies that protect farmlands and maintain agricultural viability. We also assist landowners and farmers with natural resource stewardship and conservation programs. WWAA works to balance the preservation of farming, farmland, and farmers, with the management of other critical natural and cultural resources. 

WWAA continues to commit time towards vegetable and other crop research, economics and marketing. With the multitude of environmental and political pressures affecting farming, WWAA balances our investment and commitment to most effectively and execute our mission.
