Pioneer Produce is a small sustainable farm, nestled in the foothills of Kamiak Butte, between Pullman and Palouse. We grow a variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. In addition, we have a flock of around 30 laying hens to provide for on-farm sale of eggs, and are establishing a few honey bee hives. As a local food source to the surrounding communities, Pioneer Produce harvests at peak maturity when produce is freshest, best tasting, and most nutritious. In the Fall of 2016, we added WSDA licensed jams/jellies, and dehydrated herbs, vegetables, and fruits to our offerings. In addition to our delicious produce, we offer a variety of soup mixes, seasoning and dip blends. The Dahmen Barn in Uniontown, Wilson Banner Ranch in Clarkston and Gifts on Grand in Pullman carry a limited selection of our shelf-life products. All other products are available directly from us through local craft fairs or at the farm. Under development is our Pioneer Produce Online Store! During the growing season, fresh produce is also available on the farm and at local farmers markets.
By buying locally, you are ensured the highest quality produce available, supporting the heritage of our rural communities, and helping reduce dependency on fossil fuels and carbon dioxide emissions. Thank you for putting your food-buying dollars directly into the hands of food producers!
Pioneer Produce grows a variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers. Our farming practices are similar to the first pioneers of the Palouse Country - no chemical use, no GMOs, and primarily hand tools to work the land. We buy organic and heirloom seed, or save our own seed to replant. The majority of our surrounding habitat plantings are native. Our goal is to maintain and improve soil health, promote a diverse and harmonious ecosystem, and ultimately, provide healthy food options to our community. We value direct relationships with our customers, providing food straight from our farm to your table.

Sustainable Agriculture is about being good stewards of what we have - purposefully committing to a healthy community, environment, and economy. Quality of life, both for ourselves and those we feed, is a key component to how we do business.
“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” - Wendell Berry
"To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves."
