Today marks another first for Gold Dust and Walker Brothers Farms. For the first time in company history, we are shipping grain from our processing facility in Malin, Oregon, to South East Asia. While we’ve been in the grain business for years, this is the first time in our company’s history that we’ve shipped wheat ourselves, let alone overseas. This is the first shipment of what we hope turns out to be many.
Weston, our international salesman, said the shipment is a container of a northern spring wheat we call “Gold Dust Red Wheat”. It’s been cleaned and is ready for processing into natural, whole-grain snacks. So far, the primary use of our “Gold Dust Red Wheat” is for whole grain snacks, such as Frito Lays’ multi-grain SunChips® snacks.
Visitors to our site and blog may have been under the assumption that Gold Dust and Walker Brothers Farms only deal in chipping potatoes. While it’s true that much of the focus is growing, processing and selling chippers, John and Bill have been growing and selling wheat since the 1970’s. With this much experience in raising wheat, our customers can expect the quality of our “Gold Dust Red Wheat” to meet their expectations.
We have plenty of wheat to meet this year’s orders. If you’re interested and would like a sample, contact Weston in our wheat and potato sales department. He will be more than happy to send you a sample of our “Gold Dust Red Wheat” and talk to you about pricing. Since you’re dealing directly with the grower, and not any middle men, you can be assured of big savings as well as excellent customer service.
