Working to Build and Sustain Partnerships
R.D. Offutt Farms is committed to working hand-in-hand with all of our partners, including research teams at the University of Minnesota and North Dakota State University, to develop the most environmentally-friendly practices while maintaining a consistent high-quality crop.
We supply potatoes to a processing facility in Park Rapids, Minnesota. The facility produces frozen potato products distributed across the upper Midwest. Both R.D. Offutt Farms and our partner, Lamb Weston, work together with a focus on the environment, our communities, neighbors, and research that continually improves our practices.
Straight River Groundwater Management Area Project Advisory Team
We participated on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Project Advisory Team for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area (GWMA) Plan. Our team members worked with the group for two years to draft the 76-page, five-year plan, which aims to guide the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in handling the appropriation and long-term, sustainable use of groundwater within the Straight River GWMA.
