After eight years as President of the Snake River Sugarbeet Growers Association, Randy Grant officially retired from his post last week.  The organization saw many changes under Grant’s leadership, including unification with the Nyssa-Nampa Growers Association who joined the organization in 2022.  Unification has been a goal of many sugarbeet growers for years.


For nearly two decades, Grant has been involved with the Northside Sugarbeet Growers Association.  He got involved as a receiving station director around 2004 after being nominated by his neighbors. In addition to being President of the SRSGA, Grant served on the American Sugarbeet Growers Association.  He became President of the Snake River Sugarbeet Growers Association, because he missed an annual meeting, and his peers elected him to the role.


In 1987, Randy and Angela partnered with a friend, Rocky Hagan, on a rental farm. That relationship grew over the years to include Rocky’s son, Craig. The farm consists of row crops in the Eden and Hazelton area including 1,160 shares of sugarbeets. They also grow potatoes, malt barley, dry beans, alfalfa hay, and corn.
