R.D Offutt Company is a family-owned and operated company based in Fargo, North Dakota comprised of business entities in agriculture and construction equipment, farming, real estate and development, and food processing.
Founded in 1964, R.D. Offutt Farms actively engages research teams at the University of Minnesota and North Dakota State University to develop the most environmentally friendly practices while maintaining high-quality crops.
The initial idea for R.D. Offutt Farms began when Ron saw the opportunity to produce more uniform potatoes by developing irrigation and growing in Minnesota’s sandier soils. Then, after recognizing the need for a consistent demand for his potatoes, Ron decided to enter the processing side of the business and purchased a small french fry factory.
The Offutts also own RDO Equipment, which sells and services agriculture, construction, environmental, positioning, surveying, and irrigation equipment from manufacturers including John Deere, Vermeer, and Topcon.
In 2018, the company renamed its farming operations “R.D. Offutt Farms.”
