Consistent Quality & Dependable Service

Washington grain farmers are distinct from other U.S. farmers for a variety of reasons. Primarily, our state’s climate and landscape have allowed our farmers to grow some of the cleanest grain in the U.S. Traditionally, the majority of Soft White Wheat from Washington has a less than 0.5 dockage rate.

Also, our climate has allowed Washington farmers to not only be the champions of the Soft White Wheat class, but we also grow significant amounts of high quality Hard Red Winter and Hard Red Spring wheats. In 2011, more than 20% of Washington’s wheat crop was red wheat.
