Meet Sackett Potatoes, the farmer who grew the potatoes in your bag.
A Century of Roots
For Brian Sackett, you might say potato farming was his destiny. It all started more than 100 years ago when his great-great-grandfather travelled from Nebraska to Michigan to start growing potatoes. Today, those roots remain as strong as ever – Brian’s son Tyler joined the farming operation in 2014 to represent the sixth generation – and all family members lend a hand to Sackett’s farming operation.
Brian farms with his father Alan, brother Jeff and son Tyler, and wife Abby takes care of the book keeping. The four of them are partners in the business. “My favorite part of my job is going to work every day as a family,” Brian said.
