Spud Sustainability

At Gold Dust Potato Processors, Weston Walker and his dog Spud (no lies) go for the gold when it comes to sustainability in farming. “We feel our job as farmers is to take care of the land. It’s one of our most valuable assets,” he says.

A fourth generation family farm, Gold Dust was awarded the Environmental Stewardship award by the National Potato Council and recognized by the local Chamber of Commerce for Environmental Leadership. Weston, a life-long farmer, is a man after our own hearts, dedicating his life beyond the farm to wildlife management and conservation.

Come take a look at what spud sustainability looks like on Weston’s family farm in Malin, Oregon.
