Welcome to Magic Valley Growers!

Although we do not sell our products directly to the public, our desire with this website is to tell you a little about the specialty potatoes and onions that we grow and what makes them so special.

Soon after our founding in 1983, we became the leading grower of pearl onions and Dutch Boiler® onions in North America. Through the years, we also perfected the growing of shallots and cipolline (flat Italian pearl onions). Magic Valley Growers pioneered the production and fresh-market retail distribution of baby potatoes in the United States, beginning in 1993. Check out our recipes page for great ideas on how to prepare these specialty products.
