Idaho Farm Families

Idaho wheat farm families care about the land.  We take pride in growing the highest quality wheat in a sustainable and environmentally-conscious way.

As stewards of the land, we understand that healthy food products begin with a healthy environment.  More than 97% of Idaho’s wheat harvest is grown on our family farms, where we also live, work, and play.  This stewardship has been passed down to us through multiple generations, and we work to pass this tradition on to our children and grandchildren.

Ideal Growing Environment

Idaho has one of the most consistent harvests of any wheat-growing area.  Wet springs and warm, dry summers create ideal conditions for our high-quality wheat.  Nearly two-thirds of Idaho wheat is grown under irrigation, allowing us to manage to our customer’s specification.

Our desert environment means fewer pests and diseases.  With five classes of wheat and much of our harvest grown under contract for specific customers, we are experienced in storing and shipping identity-preserved wheat.
