This week, Eagle Eye Produce, a fresh produce grower and shipper, will start shipping new crop yellow and red onions, with new crop white onions to follow soon after, from its onion facilities in Western Idaho and Eastern Oregon.
Annual onion harvest has begun once again for Eagle Eye Produce growers in the sunny, fertile Snake River Valley of Idaho and Eastern Oregon and will continue into late September.
Eagle Eye Produce starts shipping new crop yellow and red onions this week, with new crop white onions to follow soon after.
"Expect the same great quality and increased volume from us this year,” said Jason Pearson, director of onion sales at Eagle Eye Produce. "Even though Mother Nature has thrown our growers some curve balls, it's still game on."
Harvest in Washington is also underway for Eagle Eye Produce’s yellow, red and white onion crops.
“We have made significant improvements to our onion program for this season. We have the people, infrastructure and the onions in place to have a great season in both our Washington and Idaho E. Oregon regions,” said Joe Ange, director of business development at Eagle Eye Produce. “As our programs continue to grow, we are more excited than ever to get the storage season started.”
