R.D. Offutt Farms to Host 8th Annual Potato Field Days

Back by popular demand, the RDO farm team is inviting our neighbors and fellow community members to the 8th annual "all-you-can-dig party," while supplies last.

At various R.D. Offutt Farm locations from sunrise till sunset, those interested can bring potato forks and buckets to a specific RDO field and dig to their heart’s content. Fields will be clearly marked with signage and flags. Please dig at your own risk.

Together with its partners, R.D. Offutt Farms operates 10 farms in Minnesota. RDO’s Park Rapids, Perham, Wadena and Little Falls farms have offered Potato Field Days in year’s past; for the first time, our Brooten and Menomonie farm teams are also hosting the event.

Don’t forget to snap a picture and tag us on Instagram, #RDOpotatofielddays. Happy digging!
