Wisconsin yellow potato harvest is underway at Alsum Farms in Arena, Wis. with the first potato loads being washed, graded and packed for fresh market delivery to distribution centers and retail grocers the first full week of August.

Larry Alsum, President & CEO of Alsum Farms & Produce at Friesland:
"The first harvest of yellow potatoes at Alsum Farm looks promising."
Alsum Farms russet potato harvest will begin on August 11th with the Russet Caribou and Goldrush varieties. Both early season varieties will be the first of new crop russets to be harvested off the field and freshly washed, packed and delivered to retail grocers in the Midwest and beyond.

In addition, new crop Wisconsin organic russet, red and yellow potatoes will be available for shipping starting August 14th. Red potato harvest will soon be underway with shipments starting July 31st.

Alsum Farms grows, nurtures and harvests farm fresh potatoes that make their way to the dinner tables of Americans using the Wisconsin Healthy Grown® Program. This eco-friendly program has guided our farm sustainability practices for more than 25 years.

Alsum Farms utilizes the Healthy Grown Program’s regenerative agriculture approach to farming that works to strengthen ecosystems and community resilience. Alsum Farms has dedicated 50 acres to prairie restoration and pollinator habitat to cultivate a sustainably grown food supply.

Larry Alsum:
"In 1992 we began farming and by 1996 helped establish the Wisconsin Healthy Grown Program. Since that time, the Healthy Grown program has continued to guide our farm sustainability practices utilizing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to efficiently manage inputs, implement conservation practices that enhance ecosystem efforts."
With Alsum Farms in full swing harvesting new crop Wisconsin Healthy Grown Certified Alsum russet, red and yellow potatoes, now is an excellent time to offer farm fresh and sustainably grown potatoes to boost retail sales.

The versatility and storability of fresh potatoes makes this budget-friendly staple a go-to vegetable for bringing together nutritious and delicious family meals. Alsum offers a wide variety of pack options from 12 ounces up to 50-pound packs; and in poly, mesh, paper or cartons.
