PCM and the Northwest Berry Foundation (NBF)

For the past two decades, certain activities conducted by Peerbolt Crop Management have fallen in a broad category of industry-wide services. These services aim to benefit the industry as a whole and have been funded through grants and donations. This has included publications such as the Small Fruit Update, publicly funded research, and philanthropic activities like the Berry Recovery Project.  Seeing a need to broaden these activities, include the input of more individuals across the Northwest, and eliminate perceived conflict of interests with the for-profit company of Peerbolt Crop Management, the concept for the Northwest Berry Foundation was born. In 2015, NBF received its 501(c)(3) designation and has since taken over PCM's role in these activities. The resources and services NBF are very useful to any involved in the NW berry industry and can be found at their website:
