Dave & Lisa Knowles
Our wonderful parents who have encouraged, worked alongside and loved us unconditionally. Always giving wise advise and teaching us how to build character and trust God.
Dave & Lisa grew up in the Walla Walla Valley both raised in God fearing homes. Their families knew each other long before either of them were born, so after growing up together they got married following a 4 month engagement. Now they have a full busy household of 7 kids, the oldest of which was just married this year.
Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing.
When you put Faith, Hope and Love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.

There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human, are created, strengthened and maintained.

Micheal & Achsah Harkins
Are newly married and have set up their home in a little town about an hour away where Michael is a talented welder and mechanic. Though not able to be a part of the day to day tasks on the farm, they are still very involved. Giving us advice and coming to help when we have tough deadlines to meet are just a couple of the things they do to show their support.
Our general manager, keeps us all in line and on time. Her determination to be timely and her attention to quality help to ensure your onions arrive fast and fresh. Off duty, Amanda enjoys spending time with her younger siblings, riding horses and working on/driving the old 1970 ford farm truck with her brothers.
Third in line Trevor is a computer wiz. As marketing manager and our IT guy he oversees designing the website and brochures. With his laid back and easygoing personality Trev brings humor into stressful situations on the farm. In his free time, he likes to play guitar or hang out with his brother and cousins.
Tim is our production manager. His love for the outdoors, and his willingness to learn is priceless when it comes to growing Walla Walla Sweets under the guidence of an experienced onion farmer. When he's finished work, he enjoys spending time with siblings, cousins and friends while riding ATV's and horses.
Our big helper is an active, determined young boy. His willing attitude makes him an important part of our operation and a joy to work with. Always full of energy he helps sort onions, and lights up the packing house his with mischievous grins. In his play time Thomas loves to play with his little sisters and cousins, ride his bike and have nerf gun fights with his older brothers.
Is a sweet happy little lady. Despite Thomas's attempts to turn her into a tomboy she still loves to dress up in skirts and dresses and wants to be a princess or a policeman (her older brothers influence) when she grows up. At age 4, she wants to be a part of everything her older siblings do, her favorites are helping them work, riding horses and playing volleyball. In her free time she likes to make homemade slime and help mom.
Is the cutest, sweetest little 1 year old around. A tom girl through and through, she is tough as can be and bounces right back up after each fall or knock down all toddlers experience. Her cheerful personality and darling smiles are a ray of sunshine where ever she goes. Angelina loves to be part of whatever is going on and follows Thomas and Alivia everywhere their adventures take them.
Making the family top priority will invariably bring success.

Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success.
