Black Gold Farms has started harvesting red and yellow potatoes in the Red River Valley.

The company has production in numerous states, but “this is our backyard,” Black Gold CEO Eric Halverson said in a news release. The company will be harvesting the potatoes in the region for a month, and will store and ship them into April, according to the release.

“The early quality samples that we’re seeing look fantastic, and we’re ready to get them on the road,” Black Gold Farms’ fresh sales manager Keith Groven said in the release.

The company’s headquarters and Red River Valley packing facility are in Grand Forks, N.D.
