Latah County, located in northern Idaho adjacent the Washington State border, is characterized by steep rolling hills and scattered windbreaks of tamarack and ponderosa pine. The soil is partially made up of wind blown volcanic dust, primarily from the nearby Cascade Range and the Columbia Plateau. This rich earth, laden with volcanic minerals, is ideal for field crops such as lentils, barley, beans, peas and canola.
