Clarion River Organics - Zeb Bartels
PASA Members Since 2005
Sligo, PA (Clarion County)

Like many steadfast PASA members, Zeb Bartels attended his first Farming for the Future Conference and immediately realized that he wanted to be more in touch with PASA and its members.  Zeb had been looking for ways to get more connected with the sustainable farming community, and found that within in the PASA network.  

Bartels credits PASA Field Days and sessions at the annual Conference for assisting his Western PA-based business, Clarion River Organics, to really take off. Bartels says “The education that’s been provided to me through PASA has been invaluable in helping our business grow. PASA taught me how to create and implement a successful CSA and has offered workshops about marketing that have had a unquestionable impact on our business.”  

To Bartels, sustainability means a way of doing business and way of life that can continue indefinitely. Clarion River Organics incorporates that philosophy into their business by encouraging their clients and customers to continuously improve their environmental stewardship. “Our coop does marketing for farms, and we want our marketing to remain good enough to provide a livelihood for our farmers. We also want to continue to source products that keep customers purchasing locally & organic. Attending PASA’s workshops and field days guarantees that we’re up to speed on the latest in sustainable farming techniques and allows us to provide the highest quality service to our clients.”
