Our Mission and Purpose

The orchard at the WSU Pullman Horticulture Center is for members of the local campus or others to do teaching, research, and/or extension work. If we have surplus fruit or vegetables that will not be used for teaching, research, or extension projects we sell the surplus produce to the general public and apply that money to our operations funds.
