Press & Media

Since its launch in 2019, Genuine Skagit Valley and its campaigns have been showcased in press and media features.

The Skagit Valley is the last remaining center of agricultural production in the Puget Sound region. Yet, a GSV survey in 2017 found that less than 50% of Puget Sound area respondents could name even one crop from the Skagit Valley. There are over 80 commercial crops grown in Magic Skagit. As a statewide, nationwide, and yes, worldwide leader in production of crops such as potatoes, bulbs, and seed crops, GSV aims to heighten the visibility of ,and consumer connection to the products and people of Skagit Valley’s agricultural community.

As of 2023, we celebrate a count of 50 articles, podcasts, radio interviews, television segments, and media features that do just that. Below is a selection.
