Luke Hamada was born and raised in Walla Walla, WA. As a youngster, he helped out his father, Harry, uncle, Alan and three cousins, Randy, Barry and Brian in farm-raising and harvesting Walla Walla Sweet Onions. While attending Washington State University in pursuit of a biology degree, Luke continued to help out on the farm whenever he could. Upon graduating, he decided to follow in his mother’s footsteps. Luke taught middle school science for seven years until an opportunity presented itself and he decided to make a career change – to growing Walla Walla Sweet Onions alongside his family. After working on the farm for five years, he became an owner and manager of Pacific Agra Farms with his other partners. Today, Luke still proudly farms and resides in Walla Walla with his wife, Megan, and two sons, Taylor and Shay.
