Meet Brian Kirschenmann, the farmer who grew the potatoes in your bag.
Growing the Next Generation
Beyond potatoes, you could also say Brian Kirschenmann grows people. We’re into that! A few years back, Brian took his latest apprentice, Thomas Baker, under his wing to teach him everything he’s learned about farming, from tech to taters.
Thomas, formerly a grocery clerk without a background in farming, now has his hand in running a technologically state-of-the-art potato farm equipped with GPS-driven equipment and more, all part of Brian’s vision to carry on his family’s farming legacy.
Meet Brian and Thomas, see what it’s like to plant potatoes and take a look at the next generation of tater makers.
