Farming in our family goes way back, but onions started a generation before us. When our dad was six, he used his little wagon to haul Walla Walla sweet onions up to the road to sell. Through the next few years he

helped his dad on the

farm and was taught to do his best. When he was 14, he got the

opportunity to start his

own business, and D&J

Sweets was born with the

help of his brother Jeff, his

dad, and two experienced

onion farmers.

Every spring and summer he worked really hard on the onions and had the privilege of seeing his business grow.  After five years he stopped growing onions, got married and started working with his dad and brothers full time on stream bank restoration.

       Now as a father of seven, our dad wants us to have the same opportunity to work together, build character and learn how to be young entrepreneurs.

(This is our Dad, Mom, Uncle and the rest of the team during their last year of business. Twice a week they would send out trailer loads of Walla Walla Sweets to the Yakima and Wenatchee valleys )
