We’re a fourth-generation family business

We’re making decisions with the goal to one day be a fifth-generation family business. From how we grow, to how we package, to how we ship potatoes and onions to stores, we are acting with the long term in mind, and making wise use of our resources is key.


Clean Energy Commitment

Green-e® is a trusted global leader in clean energy and carbon offset certification. All farms, production facilities and partner farms use 100% renewable sources for electricity. This process involves purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates, which supports renewable electricity production.

Sustainable Packaging

Consistent with consumer and customer demand, we continue to research, test and offer more eco-friendly packaging alternatives, including paper. We are reducing food waste by using light blocker technologies to prevent greening of potatoes in retail and storage situations.

Product development is deep into the next level of recycled materials – compostable packaging and components constructed with an environmentally friendly manufacturing process using 100% virgin “non-wet strength” fiber, water-based inks and Paper Lock® sealing technology.

Habitat Restoration

One of every three bites of food we eat is possible because of the work of natural pollinators like ants, bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and birds. We are leaving unused farmland field corners as protected pollinator habitats. Our farming and agronomy team is reestablishing wetlands and evaluating bioremediation to improve ground and surface water quality by reducing nitrates by more than 50%. Ditches on our land connect with rivers, lakes and streams to create bountiful trout habitat with optimal flow and consistent water temperatures and depth.

We maintain 25 miles of windbreaks and nearly 2,000 acres of prairie and wooded areas to prevent wind erosion. These spaces double as wildlife habitat. Our farms are converting farmland to wetlands to manage watershed and slow runoff, capture nutrients and store carbon. One grower partner maintains 500 of 3,500 farmland acres as natural wetlands.

Locally Grown

We strive to connect retail stores with local potato growers to build programs with less layers, a lower cost model and positive brand story. By connecting potato farms with grocery retailers, based on quality and proximity, means your potatoes travel fewer miles to get from plant to plate.

Water Conservation

Our farming and agronomy team is reestablishing wetlands and evaluating bioremediation to improve ground and surface water quality by reducing nitrates by more than 50%. Our farm partner, Wysocki Produce Farm converted 100% of its irrigation systems to lower pressure, generating electrical savings of nearly 50% while decreasing evaporative loss by 30%.
