Lucht Family

NWT in a Nutshell


Neal and Pamela Lucht started Northwest Transplants in 1988 after experiencing the need and potential for a quality seedling production operation in the Pacific Northwest. The couple combined backgrounds in production agriculture and business management to grow a family operation that now services 5 Northwestern States and Western Canada and produces over 70 million starts annually.

A Family Affair

The couple now welcomes their daughter Lauren, a recent graduate of Oregon State University with a Master of Agricultural Science, to step in to manage marketing and expand customer services.

Community Supported

Their love of agriculture and passion for helping farmers achieve success drives the operation to expand and overcome those hardships common to agriculture. One such hardship occurred during the winter ice storm of 2008. In that storm, Northwest Transplants lost 64 of 80 greenhouses with only 2 months to go until production season began. The Lucht family was overjoyed when employees, community members, and the local FFA chapter stepped up to help rebuild and restore production to capacity in time.

Founding Principles

The company was founded on the ideal of providing quality service to customers. This service-driven mind set also carries over into their personal lives. Neal and Pamela take the time to support and serve many local and statewide affiliations.


The achievement of Northwest Transplants would not have been made without dedicated staff and loyal customers.
