2011 Land Report 100: Simplot Family

No. 18 Simplot Family

408,663 acres

Want to know how to grow a one-man farming operation into one of the world’s largest privately held agribusinesses? Think two words: french fries. At age 14, Jack Simplot founded the J.R. Simplot Company in 1923. His big break came in the 1940s, when his company developed the first commercially viable frozen fries. Today, the Simplot family, through their privately held agribusiness, employs more than 10,000 at processing and manufacturing plants in North America, Australia, China, and New Zealand. They own and operate 15 ranches in Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah, and more than 30 irrigated farms in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Nevada.
