A homage to the memory of our grandfather, Dutch Pallman…
the Dutch’s Pride brand was established
to honor his pursuit of the best of the best.
Successful farmers often share certain traits…a dawn-til-dusk work ethic, a love of the land, and an unerring, almost stubborn sense of purpose. Our grandfather, Dutch Pallman, was a tough but lovable character who exemplified these qualities and many more. He loved his family with a fierce protectiveness, and his desire to provide for them drove him from his bed in the earliest morning hours. An entrepreneur at heart, his passion for innovation and improvement reflected a formidable and unyielding quest for perfection.
Dutch’s commitment to his customers was legendary. Once quoted as saying, “Customer satisfaction is our life,” he meant every word of it. When we were kids, working out in the fields, Grandpa Dutch instilled in us a love of growing things. To this day, his legacy remains at the heart of how we, as fourth-generation farmers, run our family business.
