About Us

Pure Line Roots:

Founded in 1948, Pure Line Seeds, a small company situated in the Columbia River Plateau outside of Moscow, Idaho was known for producing and developing pea varieties for the processing market.

As this small company grew they found themselves broadening their sales reach from Northern Idaho into parts of Canada and the Pacific Northwest.

When demand for their peas increased so did their physical location of production, milling, and warehousing move to the heart of the Columbia Basin – Warden Washington.
