As you may know by now, Pacific Coast Fruit Company is more than just a produce company. We carry a number of local offerings to better serve the needs of our restaurants and retail partners, including eggs and dairy. LIke everything else we buy and sell, we make sure the companies we work with are held to the same standards that we hold ourselves to.

Stiebrs Egg Farm in Yelm, Washington is a third-generation family owned company, just like us. They were the first egg farm in Washington to be Certified Humane, as well as being USDA Organic and non-GMO. Over 65 years ago, they started with 100 hens and a big dream, which has evolved into one of the largest egg producers in the Pacific Northwest. Most chefs prefer Stiebrs eggs for their flavor, consistency, and overall quality. We also carry their liquid egg mix which has undergone rigorous USDA inspection for quality and safety.

We also carry a line of liquid dairy products from Alpenrose Dairy and Smith Brothers Farms for our Portland and Seattle areas, respectively. Alpenrose Dairy is over 100 years old and located on the edge of SW Portland, touting six generations of family run leadership. Over the years, they’ve grown into a community hub with the farm featuring the National Girls’ Little League Softball Diamond, Oregon’s only outdoor Velodrome for bicycle racing, and the quirky and kid-friendly Dairyland installation where they host many holiday celebrations. Smith Brothers is also a family owned dairy with a century-long pedigree. Smith Brothers built their reputation on delivering fresh milk to families throughout the Puget Sound. Even after refrigerators became commonplace in American households, Smith Brothers is still we a well-known name for at home milk delivery servicing over 50,000 families. We are proud to also be distributing their milk to our foodservice customers in the Seattle area. Both Alpenrose and Smith Brothers produce milk from cows not treated with the rBST growth hormone.

So when you make your next order, we’ve got you covered with a full line of Organic and conventional egg and liquid dairy products, all selected and delivered with the same attention to quality and service that we give to our produce, generation after generation.
