RDO Farm Team Spends Time with Local Students

Park Rapids 5th graders recently spent time learning about agriculture with Warren Warmbold, Midwest Operations Manager, and Tricia Denny, Executive Operations Assistant, for R.D. Offutt Farms. The team hosted about 150 students, sharing information about the potato growing process. Students learned about potato planting equipment and the complexities associated with growing different potato varieties, seed sizing, and more. The group was highly energetic and clearly engaged with the subject matter, asking great questions about the process of growing potatoes. Each student took home their very own potato seeds, with instructions on how to grow their own potatoes at home, along with some fun souvenirs.
