San Luis ValleyColorado
In the San Luis Valley of Colorado is 3rd generation potato grower, Jared Smith. Every potato farm is unique in some way, and this farm is surrounded by mountains that Smith, in his free time, flies through in his plane. The plane also comes in handy at the farm for getting a bird’s eye view of the entire operation. It is sometimes easier to spot potential problems from the sky rather than on the ground.

Derek Friehe/Travis Meacham
Derek Friehe is the owner of Friehe farms and learned about the potato industry from his father. Friehe’s father, who immigrated from Germany in the 1980s, had the foresight to see the Upper Columbia Basin as a great opportunity for growing potatoes because of the good soil and the good source of water. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, the operation continued to grow into what it is now. Today, Travis Meacham, the production manager at Friehe Farms, is using robust technology to increase efficiency on the farm.
