Dig, ship, ‘n chip: Neumiller Sproule potato harvest 2019

The Neumiller family and  Sproule Farms has been an enjoyable and productive partnership, according to information published on the Neumiller website.

Starting on a handshake in 1997, we continue to expand our horizons into new crops. We generally grow potatoes in Illinois, but have planted a variety of other crops as well such as carrots, canning pumpkins and sweet corn. This valuable and fertile irrigated land is ideal for growing these crops and in turn has been largely successful.”

The potatoes grown are processing potatoes used for making potato chips and salads. Much of the crop is sent from field to factory to a nearby chip plant. Depending on the time of year, much of the crop goes from the field to a bag of potato chips in as little as 4-24 hours.
