Our russet potatoes are grown at high elevation in the perfectly sustainable microclimate of the San Luis Valley of Colorado. As the snow melts in the surrounding mountains, it feeds the aquifer under the valley providing the irrigation for the potatoes to maintain the proper amount of moisture. The warm summer days and cool nights allow these special potatoes to flourish and grow until harvested at the peak of season. Known for their fluffy interior and unblemished skin, our San Luis Valley russets are the perfect complement to any meal.
Grown in the rich black volcanic soil of the Red River Valley located in North Dakota, Minnesota and Manitoba, red potatoes are widely known for their rosy red skin and white waxy flesh. Manitoba is a Canadian province located just north of the North Dakota border. The province is well known for its red potatoes, which possess very good color and consistent quality year after year. Red potatoes stay moist, firm and flavorful during the cooking process and as a result are extremely versatile. Red potatoes are the perfect choice for roasting, boiling, or as a salad ingredient.
Yellow potatoes are very eye appealing, but they are not covered with eyes. Smooth, thin, eye-free, yellow-tinged flesh – these are all distinct characteristics of our yellow potatoes. Yellow potatoes have a buttery taste profile and are considered medium in starch – perfect for grilling, boiling or just mashing with russets for added flavor.
