Owyhee Produce in Nyssa, OR, recently announced the acquisition of new onion acreage in Murphy, ID, south of Parma. An additional 400 acres of onion ground has the potential to yield 600 more loads of onions for the 2016-17 shipping season.
That translates to another half million-plus bags.
Owyhee General Manager Shay Myers said the expansion allows the company to add to its 2016 onion productions and meet the demands of its customers.
“We’re very excited about the expansion and the location,” Myers said.
