5th generation Oregon farmers launch ‘SpudLove’ chips

While the headlines are full of companies calling it quits over these historic setbacks, one Oregon farm is going big with a new product launch called SpudLove potato chips, according to the  Oregon Family Farm Association.

They report that SpudLove Snacks is making its newest potato chips with spuds grown at Threemile Canyon Farms in Boardman, harvested by fifth-generation potato farmers. In touting its five flavors of 100 percent organic chips.

SpudLove promised to donate potatoes every month to Farmers Ending Hunger, a nonprofit started in Hermiston that collects fresh produce for the Oregon Food Bank. The food bank estimated 84,000 children each month eat meals from emergency food boxes.

“We’re honored to be the beneficiaries of this generous partnership that helps bring locally grown potatoes to families facing food insecurity throughout Oregon,” John Burt, executive director of Farmers Ending Hunger, said in a statement.

According to SpudLove, their chips are 100% “USDA-certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified and certified gluten-free.” The company’s leaders say they built the brand to appeal to millennials: with a clear farm source and health-conscious focus.

SpudLove’s CEO, Sheila Stanziale, said the chips are cooked slowly in small batches using less oil than average chips and are sliced extra-thick so they’ll come out crunchy and “potato-y.”

The 93,000-acre farm operates three conventional dairies and an organic dairy. It has set aside 23,000 acres as conservation area and 29,000 acres as rangeland and open spaces, according to its website. The farm grows organic potatoes, blueberries, carrots, sweet corn, sweet peas, alfalfa and pasture, field corn and onions.

SpudLove Snacks’ thick-cut chip flavors are sea salt, barbecue, sea salt plus vinegar, jalapeno, and cracked pepper.
