Simplot Grower Solutions
John Richard Simplot was born in Dubuque, Iowa, in 1909, he was the third of six children of Charles R. and Dorothy Simplot. A year later, the family relocated a thousand miles west to homestead in the newly irrigated Magic Valley of south central Idaho. Simplot quit school in the eighth grade and left home to strike out on his own at age 14 in 1923. He then worked on a farm near Declo, before getting into the potato and vegetable processing business. “J.R.” Simplot passed away at the age of 99, but lived a prosperous life and left a great legacy that continues to grow. In 1978 Simplot Grower Solutions was started in Drummond. Later the location was moved to the current location at Horseshoe Flats: being near the old town site known as Lillian which originally was known as Mountain Dell, teaches us how our facility became known as the Mountain Dell unit.
