Food holidays aren’t hard to love because they give you a shameless excuse to eat that food in large amounts in their honor. This month is Potato Lovers’ Month and we are here to celebrate Farmer Jim’s favorite crop—the delicious and versatile potato. Whether you mash, smash or fry them they are a yummy addition to any meal. This month in our Farm Market we featured our own potato candy, potato pies, chocolate dipped chips and potato rolls to show you that there are many ways to enjoy this spudtacular vegetable. They are even delicious enough that they were chosen as the first vegetable to be grown in space! The world…and the universe…need these a-peel-ing veggies. Plus, they are a great source of Potassium and Vitamin C, so it’s not surprising that Americans eat an average of 137.9 lbs of spuds every year making them the second most consumed food in the U.S.
Potatoes come in all shapes and sizes and never disappoint. Here on the Country Barn Farm, we don't just grow potatoes, we grow flavor. Our own potatoes are available in the Farm Market year round. Stop by for some spectacular spuds from our farm to your fork today!
