Founded and led by a Minnesota native, R.D. Offutt Farms celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2014. Just as it did when it started in 1964, R.D. Offutt Farms continues to seek innovative, better ways to produce potatoes while maintaining its commitment to protecting and enhancing the communities in which it resides and the land on which the company was built. Now, more than 50 years after Ron Offutt founded R.D. Offutt Farms with a family loan and an idea of how the fertile land of Minnesota could better produce a potato, the company continues to grow with the same spirit of integrity and family upon which its foundation was laid.
