EXTRA – EXTRA; HEAR IT FIRST before you read it in The New York Times!!
In this episode we chat with Shay Myers, CEO of Owyhee Produce. Owyhee grows enough onions to supply nearly 6 million Americans for a year! But during the COVID-19 crisis food has been dumped. The New York Times reached out to Shay Myers and we wanted to make sure our industry heard it first through The Produce Industry Podcast. Owyhee Produce (a division of Froerer Farms) is a 3rd generation family farm, one of the largest vertically-integrated onion farms in the country. Shay and Patrick talk about the current situation of dumping food, what’s our next day-by-day step and how to thrive during this crazy time.
