The Skagit Valley, nestled in the Pacific Northwest between Seattle & Vancouver with views of Mount Baker & the San Juan Islands, is the most important agricultural valley remaining in the Puget Sound region. Since the first commercial harvest of potatoes in 1853, Skagit farmers & their fertile soil have supplied the Northwest, nation, & world with nearly every crop imaginable. Genuine Skagit Valley is a nonprofit established in 2019 to increase awareness of Skagit Valley agricultural products & services. They partner with the Port of Skagit to enhance the local agricultural industry, promoting innovative approaches that combine research & technology producing new jobs & a robust economy centered on the valley’s rich agricultural resources & heritage.
