STARTS IN THE FIELD


Kevin has worked on the farm since early childhood. His earliest memories on the farm are riding with his Dad, Steve, in the combine and being with his Mom and Grandma in the kitchen as they prepared meals for the harvest crew. He graduated from Washington State University in 2000 with a degree in Ag Technology and Management. Kevin married his wife, Sara in 2008 and is raising their family on the farm just as he was and together they launched Palouse Brand. He loves that farming allows for him to be outside, tending to the fields. He finds immense satisfaction in stewarding the land and bringing crops to fruition.
