Meet George Wallace!
Let's Meet George Wallace, who joined his brother Norm back in 1957 to help "grow" the company that Norm founded in 1945 - The Norm Wallace Agency. Almost 60 years later, George still comes into the office to do work at Wallace & Associates. And he is still busy "growing" things! Yep, George is co-founder of G&D Wallace/Wallace Farms. The Wallace family has been growing potatoes in the Skagit Valley since 1903 after emigrating from Ireland. The current company was founded in the 1950's by George and his other brother Dick, who farmed the same land farmed by their father, Robert Wallace, and their uncles, George and Tom Wallace. Today, co-owners George Wallace and his sons, Jack and Norm, and Dick Wallace’s son Tim grow and market conventional red, white, gold and purple potatoes as well as organic red and russet potatoes.
