Okanogan Producers Marketing Association (OPMA)

We are six small farms working together, sharing resources, equipment, knowledge, expertise, marketing and sales. We have developed a close working relationship between the farms and farmers and our Co-op for the benefit of the consumers we serve. We believe that we have much more to offer our customers through these relationships than we ever did as individual farms and farmers.

Since 2006 we have forged strong connections with our markets and have developed a reputation for excellent

quality fruit and produce as well as customer service and delivery. OPMA's quick delivery from tree to the consumer makes it possible to guarantee our products. If there is any question about the condition, quality, or freshness of any item we deliver, we will replace it or otherwise make it right for the buyer.

The naturally warm sunny climate of the Okangan makes it possible for us to grow the best quality fruit and produce available anywhere in the world.

OPMA Farms grow and market Washington State Department of Agriculture Certified Organic as well as IPM and Transitional fruits and garden vegetables.

OPMA's list of crops grown is extensive and varied. We have single trees of some varieties and acres of others so availability and quantity is dictated by the size of the planting. For example, more than 25 varieties of heirloom apples are grown on just 2.5 acres.

Our product list includes, but is not limited to, the following items:

Crop # of Varieties Harvest Dates

Farmer of the Year sees small farms in our future

Woods helps young farmers get their start

Article from the Wenatchee World

OKANOGAN After a lifetime of farming it, Watershine Woods could not imagine any other future for her land on the flats above Okanogan.

So now that it's time for her to "semi" retire, she's passing most of it on to a new generation of farmers.
