Farm Fresh Direct staff, friends and family ran the Spartan Race in Colorado Springs, CO this past weekend, an obstacle racing event benefitting soldiers returning from war. We had a blast and the entire team finished! Check out some photos from the race below.

Welcome to the new Farm Fresh Direct

Boy has it been busy around here. This time, it’s not about planting fields, building a bigger barn or tinkering with a tractor. Right now, we’re working on making a name for ourselves in cyberspace by launching our new website and blog. Not bad for a bunch of farmers, eh?

We’re excited to share what we know, how we live and how much we love what we do. Because we want you to understand where we’re coming from and why you should feel great about welcoming our potatoes at your table.

So, who is Farm Fresh Direct? We’re a partnership of multi-generational potato farmers, mostly living in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, but also in Kansas, Nebraska and Nevada, too. We banded together in 1999 to help each other grow and since then, we’ve done a lot of that.

Today, we’re one of the largest potato producers in the U.S., but growing hasn’t changed who we are. Each one of us is dedicated to providing fresh, healthy and delicious food for our families and yours, while serving as careful stewards of the land.

Watch the video to learn more about us. And then, tell us a little about yourself and what you love most about potatoes. We can’t wait to read what you have to say.
