Get To Know Our Farms and The Potatoes That We Grow

We will soon give you updates each month on what’s going on at our farms. In the meantime, we’d like to show you around some parts of the Farm Fresh Direct site so you get to know our farms better, and learn about the potatoes that we grow.

 

Our Farms

Most of our farms are nestled in the gorgeous San Luis Valley in Colorado, a tract of land stretching 122 miles long and 70 miles wide, bordered by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the east and the stunning San Juans to the west. We’ve also expanded beyond Colorado, and are proud to have partner farms in Kansas, Nebraska and Nevada. Click through to see our featured farms: Summit, Price, Spud Grower, JDS and Esperanza Farms, and the Three S Ranch.

 

Our Crops

Farm Fresh potatoes start out on our beautiful farms, where they’re carefully tended by hardworking farmers and dedicated crews. And though growing potatoes is seriously hard work, we love to do it. Our “office” has some of the best views anywhere, and knowing our potatoes feed so many people makes us feel great about what we do. Click through to learn a little bit about what we do through each season: spring, summer, fall and winter.

 

Potato Varieties

Potatoes come in all shapes, sizes, colors and flavors, and each type has its own taste and texture. Real experts—like our farmers—can even see and taste the difference between two different varieties of russets. These special qualities make different types of potatoes better for certain dishes or styles of preparation. Click through to learn about the different types of potatoes we grow: russets, reds, yellows, fingerlings, purples/blues, whites and sweets.

 

Express Bake PotatOH

Making a PotatOH is an easy shortcut that delivers all the great taste of an oven-baked potato or your favorite potato dish. Pre-washed and ready to cook, each PotatOH is wrapped in our SavorSeal™, a special, microwave-safe and BPA-free wrap designed to protect foods and preserve their fresh taste when cooked in the microwave.
