R.D. Offutt Company Strives to be a Positive Community Partner
R.D. Offutt Company is a Minnesota company, and our dedication to the communities in which we live and work is something in which we take pride and will continue to support on all levels. We believe in giving back to the communities in which we are located. It’s an obligation we never take for granted because it directly impacts the more than 500 people we employ in those same Minnesota communities.
It’s why we work closely with our community partners to identify environmentally sensitive areas and why we manage those farms accordingly. With guidance from our community partners we’ve planted more than 125,000 trees near our farming operations in Minnesota as we continue to create buffer zones whenever and wherever possible. We've also planted over 1,200 acres of pollinator seed to create vibrant habitat for bees, butterflies, pheasants, and other critical pollinators.
It is why, as part of our ongoing commitment to safe application methods, we sponsor an annual industry conference for aerial application providers that is considered the gold standard for safety and training. Learn more about the most recent Fly-in Professional Seminar.
