Products

Russet Potatoes

Russet potatoes are available year-round from farms across the country including farms in Idaho, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Indiana.

Packaging
We offer an extensive array of pack styles – poly bags, mesh bags, pouch bags, trays, microwave singles and more; and we often customize packaging to fit our individual customers’ needs.

Red, White & Yellow Potatoes

Red, white, and yellow potatoes are available year-round. We offer seasonal, local grown programs out of northern Florida and North Carolina.

Health Benefits
Russet, red, white & yellow potatoes are high in potassium, which has been shown to lower blood pressure, and is high in Vitamin C, which promotes the immune system and helps to fight cancer. Potatoes are fat-free, cholesterol-free and sodium-free (less than 5mg per 85 g).

Storage
Store potatoes in a cool location away from direct sunlight and moisture for up to 3 weeks. Warm temperatures and sunlight, even in small amounts, can cause potatoes to sprout. Sunlight can also cause greening in russet, white, and yellow potatoes. This green color is actually chlorophyll (plants’ food source) developing near the surface. There is no harm in eating a potato that has turned green, although it may develop a bitter taste if left for too long. Simply peel away the green parts and use your potato as normal.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are available year-round from our farms in Georgia and North Carolina. We grow primarily Covington sweet potatoes but also offer Murasaki sweet potatoes.

Health Benefits
Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A, which promotes eye and skin health. Beta carotene, a component of Vitamin A, has been shown to protect against some carcinogens and preserve night vision. They also contain vitamin C which is an immune system booster and helps fight cancer. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber and are cholesterol and fat-free.
