Northface Farms, Inc
30 miles west of Spokane, WA
First generation farm started in 2001. Started spotting harvest trucks at age 13 and worked on a farm thru high school. Had an opportunity to move back to Eastern Washington after college and transition into a farm.
As conservation becomes an important part of agriculture and society, direct seeding is one of the core factors that will carry agriculture into the future.
It is gratifying to watch the grain we grow on our farm end up in local or regional products that feed neighbors and ourselves.
It is beneficial for both sides to understand what happens from the time the seed is planted to the time that flour product is pulled out of the oven. When both growers and customers understand and respect each others hard work the relationship grows stronger over time.
