The co-founder of Palouse Heritage and Director of Business Development is Don Scheuerman. Brother to Richard, he also was raised on the family farm between Endicott and St. John, Washington. Don has worked on agricultural trade and development projects for the State of Alaska, Russian and Vietnamese State and private companies and in the Eastern Washington retail food sector. He also serves as President of Palouse Heritage Farmstead Brewery while overseeing Palouse Colony Farm operations.
Raised in Endicott, Andrew has been participating in agriculture since he was big enough to buck a bale. After the completion of his bachelor's degree as a dual major in political science and history at the University of Idaho, Andrew spent time working for a study abroad program located in Regensburg Germany, a program which he had attended as a student. The opportunity to experience and explore some of the important locations of his Volga German ancestors served as the wind to turn his tack toward their legacy of agriculture. Since that time Andrew has worked in agricultural research on the Palouse and in the greater inland northwest and is partnered now with his uncles (Don and Richard) as farm manager of Palouse Colony Farm.
