Sunrain Varieties LLC, a producer of fresh potato seed, recently purchased a 1,600-acre farm located in the Victor-Driggs, ID, area.
“This acreage will be used primarily for early generation seed production and we look forward to a great fall harvest,” Aron Derbidge, business manager at Sunrain, said in a press release.
The company also plans construction of a world-class storage and grading facility on the property.
“With on-site sorting and sizing, Sunrain will be able to offer the trade pre-sized seed lots,” Derbidge said in the release. “Sunrain is continually striving to help our customers save time and money in the planting process so this addition makes good sense.”
Sunrain will be holding a new product showcase and open house Aug. 13 at its Idaho facility. Contact Rainey Carraballo at for more information or a facility tour.
