Farmer: Philip Mehlenbacher
Location: Burbank, WA
Kettle Brand Farmer Since: 1989
Taters of Tradition
For some farmers, it’s just in their blood. Philip Mehlenbacher is one of them. A third-generation farmer, Philip grew up with Kettle Brand: His family farm started growing potatoes for our chips in 1989, when he was just 5 years old.
“Working with Kettle Brand, an organization that shares our passion for making great-tasting food and sharing it with friends and family, has been wonderful,” he says. “It’s allowed my father, my brother and me to support our families and be part of something bigger than all of us.”
