Want to know where your Identity Preserved, GMO Free food comes from?
There aren’t many companies, if any, that can identify where and when your food was grown and harvested. Palouse Brand IP’s (Identity Preserves) your food. We can tell you what field your food was grown in and the date we harvested your food.
Why can we tell you where your food was grown?
We are the originators, cleaners and packagers of our products. We are a family run business. So while we have Steve and Kevin working in the fields to grow our natural food, Dave manages our cleaning plant while Sara, Kevin’s wife, is hard at work in the office managing our consumer product sales.
How did this start?
Five Generations ago the Mader Family started farming. Our farm operations span across the south east part of Washington State and are headquartered in Pullman, WA. In 2001 we acted on an opportunity to add a cleaning facility to our operation. Our cleaning plant, Palouse Trading, is located in Palouse, WA – just a short drive from Pullman.
Palouse Trading first opened its doors in the 1930’s under the name Wallace Grain and Pea Company. The plant was designed for quality not quantity and has cleaned grains for the international market and domestic consumption. We take a raw food product and clean it into food grade edible product. Our food is appealing to our consumers because of the nutritional and aesthetic values.
The farm operation has been using the latest in sustainable agricultural practices. We have been using Direct Seeding and NO-Till practices since 1982. These changes have greatly reduced soil erosion, have increased soil health and helped us control our cost in an ever-rising input cost environment. In 2006 we became “Food Alliance” certified.
