About Us
PNW Co-op Specialty Foods: Real food with local roots
With names like Sunrise, Shasta and Pedrosillano, our unique foods don’t just
sound different. We think they taste better, too. That’s because they’re grown by
a unique family of farmers on the Palouse who are passionate about putting
healthier food on your table.
We’re Pacific Northwest Farmers Cooperative, also known as PNW Co-op. We’re
dedicated to preserving family farms and protecting the land through a way of life
that some call old-fashioned. We’re OK with that, and one taste of our delicious
PNW Co-op Specialty Foods explains why.
Practices
Passed down through many generations, our 100-year-old family farms in
eastern Washington and northern Idaho are rooted in sustainable agriculture.
When you meet our growers, they’ll gladly tell you about their history of nurturing
the land through crop rotation, soil conservation and reduced tillage. The results?
The farmers who grow PNW Co-op Specialty Foods use up to 50 percent less
fossil fuel, greatly reduce the use of toxic chemicals, sequester carbon, protect
the soil, and conserve water.
It all adds up to rich, healthy soil, which allows PNW Co-op to grow incredibly
healthy garbanzo beans, lentils and split peas.
PNW Co-op Specialty Foods are also verified by the Non-GMO Project, certified
Kosher, and pass the toughest food safety inspections in the industry.
“We know there is a real and growing concern about the food we eat and the
methods under which those foods are grown and handled,” says Bill Newbry,
chief executive officer of PNW Co-op. “We select the food products we grow as
carefully as we select food for our own families.”
