Potato crop is best it’s been in four years, according to Idaho farmer

For Randy Hardy of Hardy Farms INC., the potato harvest is coming to an end. He started harvesting towards the end of September, and he hopes to be finished by Friday, given the rain doesn’t slow them down. On Thursday, he had about 50 acres of potatoes left to harvest. “Harvest has looked really good, we’ve had a couple of challenges from the weather but the crop looks excellent, I think it’s the best quality crop that Idaho’s had in three or four years,” said Randy Hardy, owner and president of Hardy Farms INC. Besides the two and a half inches of rain the Magic Valley got back in September, Hardy said that harvest conditions have been pretty good. Hardy said that this year’s crop is better than last. He said that he hopes to get some of those national buyers back that he lost due to poor harvests in years past. More
