Idaho Falls, ID – This week, Eagle Eye Produce, BB #:156533 a top-tier fresh produce grower and shipper, will start shipping a new crop of yellow, red, and white onions from their facilities in Western Idaho & Eastern Oregon.
It’s harvest season again for Eagle Eye Produce onion growers in the sunny, fertile Snake River Valley of Idaho and Eastern Oregon and will continue into late September.
“We’re happy that even though the growing season was not ideal, our growers faced the challenges head on and turned out some quality onions,” said Jason Pearson, Onion Commodity Sales Manager, “with the cool, wet spring, peak sizing will trend smaller, and yields will be impacted slightly, but expect great quality this season from Eagle Eye Produce.”
Eagle Eye Produce’s teams in Washington are also currently hard at work harvesting their red and yellow onion crops. White onion harvest will start in the coming weeks.
“As a company, we’ve never been better positioned than we are today. The hard work and investments we have made throughout the past few years have led to a bolstered supply, more efficient processes, and more consistent packs year-round for our customers throughout the globe, “said Joe Ange, Director of Business Development at Eagle Eye Produce. “We’re excited about the upcoming season, and we’re excited to continue to build out our onion program further.”

Potato harvest is underway again for Eagle Eye Produce. Over the next few months, Eagle Eye growers will harvest thousands of acres of world-famous Idaho potatoes along with thousands of acres from key growing areas in Washington.
“We are extremely excited and thankful to get a new harvest underway.” said Coleman Oswald, Director of Sales at Eagle Eye Produce, “due to a cool, wet start to the growing season, we are a bit delayed starting harvest, but the crop is look very good and there is a tremendous amount of demand built up, due to the short supply year we are transitioning from. Overall acreage for this season is down due to limitations with irrigation water and increased input costs for growers and packers. With the challenges early in the growing season, we anticipate slightly smaller size profiles and a bit lighter yield, but overall, we are very pleased with the quality and excited to get this crop out of the ground and ready for consumers.”
