Tomas Ortiz sorts through ranger potatoes... (The Observer/LAURA MACKIE-HANCOCK).


Tomas Ortiz sorts through ranger potatoes as they pour out of a large, even-flow tub and onto a conveyor belt Thursday at the new farming operation on Peach Road. The farm is owned by R.D. Offutt Farms and managed by Gary Chapman of La Grande. The land is used solely for growing seed potatoes, which are delivered to other farms in Boardman and Winnemucca, Nev. Russet potatoes will be harvested later in the season.
